Today we wrapped up the biography unit with Mrs. Puccio and Mrs. Seres's class with a mini version of the "Celebrity Ball." We've been preparing for weeks to have the second graders dress up and be interviewed as their celebrity. The cool thing about this year was that we had a lot of interesting people that many of us had never of before. Check out some of our celebrities and their books!
LOVE Jonah Winter books!
Love, love, love Maira Kalman
This is a great book about the little known slave turned firefighter, Molly Williams. Amazing story!
Who doesn't love chocolate and MARS candy???!!!
Another Maira Kalman
Thanks, Ben, for all your many inventions!
It was a great day for the party!
But wait! There's more! The fifth graders met with Casey Seiler via Skype this afternoon for some more help with the Archives project. No surprise--he was awesome!
First graders kept working on their Zoo Projects--We will get our hands dirty tomorrow, for sure!
I'm reading "Three Times Lucky" with some 4th graders. How can you not love Mo and Dale?
First graders started poetry this morning. My favorite books to teach poetry--Dear Hot Dog and Hailstones and Halibut Bones.
