Book Character New Year's Resolutions

The beginning of the year brought around a favorite activity that we've done in the past. Since many of the students discuss and set new year's resolutions in their classrooms, it's always fun to see what kinds of resolutions they would set for book characters if those book characters were able to talk. Here are a few for you to enjoy!

Iggy Peck, Architect

The fourth graders had a lot of fun with today's lesson!  First, we read the book called Iggy Peck, Architect written by Andrea Beaty and illustrated by David Roberts.  It's about a boy who is crazy about building things, but has some trouble when he gets to second grade.  Don't worry because in the end, he saves the day!  After reading the book, the students got to try their hand at building something by using only toothpicks and marshmallows.  Check out their awesome structures!

Ice Skating and Building Snowmen

The Pre-K classes had a lot of fun participating in some winter activities.  After reading a book or two about having fun in the snow, the students were able to do a little ice skating around the library using wax paper.  We even took turns building snowmen, on the iPad of course. Take a look at our video showcasing a couple of the classes.
