OZOBOT center

This past week I introduced these cute Ozobots to our students. They are little robots who read colored sequences to do different commands.  The students create their own path and give it different colored command sequences and watched the ozobot follow.  It's so much fun.. Mr Johnson even came up and experimented with them.

If your kids request an Ozobot Evo for Christmas this year, you'll know why!

See you in the library,

Last week in Library

Last week I read excerpts from  "Native American Myths about the Night Sky" to the older classes. Afterward, we looked up the coordinating animals from the myth (using a stars app) and then made our own constellations with black paper. We covered up some of the library windows to make our own version of the night sky.  Some teachers used this as a writing prompt to create their own myths. It looks pretty great!   The students have to search for  their personalized constellations next time they come to library. 

The younger students read Sophie's Squash with me and got to hold Bernice my butternut baby. 

It's been a great week in library-  Mrs. Adams

Library Centers

Microscope Discovery Center

Our 3-6th grade students are learning about classifying living and non living things, cells, and how to use a microscope.  Part of the activity is to draw what they think they'll see and then draw what the sample actually looks like magnified.  

After learning about how to take care of books we now have a bookmark coloring station.

My shelves are looking beautiful because my assistants know how to take care of our library
space and our collection. 

Practicing our ABC order and Dewey Decimals! 

These AR (augmented reality) books bring nonfiction books to life.

Learning how to do research independently, use the database, and 
how to cite your sources! 
Question of the Week Center

 Our Lego Engineering Table. This week's challenge is to build a bridge. I heard some interesting conversations about how making a bridge with legos isn't possible. Then the group discussed their ideas and challenges and came up with an idea to try. I love hearing them problem solve together. Included with this center is books about building and bridges to check out.

Other centers include reading silently on the couches, and our Book Fair I-Spy table.

It's been a great week of reading and curiosity 

See you in the library,

Mrs. Adams

Book Fair Volunteer Signup

We really could use your help at the book fair. It's fun and easy. You also get to see your kids as they visit the library.  

Thanks for supporting literacy and the library here at Fox Hollow.

For Grandparents Day Students will go to their classes to check in first. If grandparents are arriving separately the Student Council members will go retrieve the student to meet them outside the cafeteria, before heading to the photo booth or book fair.
