Last week we celebrated Read Across America week! We had such great themes everyday, such as Mixed up Monday, Wild Wednesday and Fun Friday. Thursday was Think About It Thursday...students (and teachers) were encouraged to dress up as their favorite book character. We had everything from Harry Potter to Crayons to Rock, Paper Scissors. What a fun way to get our students excited about their favorite books and being creative!

Jimmy Strand from the I.U.5 was in Mrs. Smith's Kindergarten class showing our Kindergarteners how to use a new math tool called a Rekenrek.

Students love using with new tools that offer them different ways to learn!
