Grades 1-5 will continue to learn some more about comics history.  We will see how the Comics Code affected comic books, learn about underground comics, and revisit some favorite newspaper comic strips.  In May, we will wrap up our look at comics history and the students will spend a few weeks making their own comic pages and mini comics.  It should be a lot of fun!

Our Booked for Recess Club (Grade 1) met yesterday to discuss the book “8 Class Pets…” by Vivian Van Velde. We talked about how to share our thoughts on the story and the characters. They really seemed to enjoy this crazy story of animals running loose in an elementary school at night!

May Booked for Recess Club (Grade 1)

Standard

The “Booked for Recess” Club will meet on Tuesday, May 24th, during recess.  We will be reading The One and Only Stuey Lewis: Stories from the Second Grade by Jane Schoenberg.  This will be the LAST book club date for this school year.

So what if Stuey isn’t the world’s best reader, is only allowed to trick or treat around one block, doesn’t get to play on his soccer dream team, and has to put up with the most annoying girl on the planet. Somehow Stuey always makes life work and when he puts his mind to it, he can survive anything―even second grade. This hilarious collection of linked short stories, interspersed with sprightly line drawings, marks an impressive chapter book debut.

Students can check this book out of our school library or the public library.  If you would like Mrs. Susina to order a copy of the book for you, please send $8 (cash if possible) to school by Friday, April 29th.  This will allow enough time for the books to arrive and for your child to have the book read by our club date.
