Don't let teachers have all the fun with the annual Tacky Sweater Contest!
Here's a way for you to design your very own TACKY SWEATER. Choose any of the 12 designs and give it your tackiest touch.
We look forward to seeing your creations.
In January 2018, we will take a closer look at books - specifically the parts of a book and the jobs of author, illustrator and publisher in making the idea of a book become something tangible.
Our theme for this activity will be: all things winter
Shared Reading: Selections by Robert Sabuda, Jan Brett, Caralyn Buehner
This week we'll be taking a look at toys and perhaps making some toys of our own (SLIME????).

A word about SLIME: Not all classes will be able to participate in the SLIME making activity over the next two weeks. Performance practice and field trips are one reason. Class size is another. Unfortunately, some of you did not earn slime due to behavior during library enrichment over the past two weeks.
