One happy student here at Wildwood loves Diary of a Wimpy Kid and wants to read them all in his native español!
Today he started on El diario de Greg (Wimpy Kid #1) but he will quickly want #2! Would you be willing to help our Spanish speakers and donate to the Wildwood PGO so we can purchase the set of 11 for the library? Click here to donate to the Wildwood PGO. Don't forget to mention it is for our Spanish language collection!
Check out how many copies we have in English! So many are checked out we have a big hole on our shelf!
Today's the day! Our Dr. Seuss Read-a-thon Assembly and Drop Everything And Read! And our PGO sponsored author visit in the afternoon! In case you missed it:
These brave 4th and 5th graders participated in our very 1st Battle of the Books! Each of these students read at least 5 (and most of them read between 15 and 25) of the 25 MCBA Mashup books! On Friday they answered questions about the MCBA books and battled in a fun event that celebrated good kids reading great books! Congratulations! Well done!
Update 2/28/17: We are continuing to discover and explore the Demas/Roehrig books! Please enjoy this hilarious rhyming and vocabulary clip from our K-2 and 1st grade reading of Are Pirates Polite?
The Book In Hand is a program developed by author Megan Dowd Lambert and I was lucky enough to learn about the emerging reading experience during the time that I worked with Megan at The Eric Carle Museum. I am very grateful to Megan for allowing me to experiment with this program at Wildwood. A huge THANK YOU to the Wildwood PGO for providing the funding for both our author visit and multiple copies of Corinne Demas' books so that our students can fully experience the Book In Hand.
The first of of our videos features Ms. Secco's 1st grade class. Please take a moment to notice the focus and attention of the students without the books and with the books in their hands.
And the winner is......
Students in Kindergarten and 1st grade voted for their favorite picture book of 2016. The funny adventure of a young panda determined to look "impressive" in pants was the clear winner. "Du Iz Tak" won the Best of Wildwood Honor Medal
"Du Iz Tak" also received a Caldecott Honor from the American Library Association. What can I say? Our students have great taste!
Over the past two months we read the most acclaimed picture books of 2016. As we read our interactive storytime focuses on picture design and literary elements (i.e. plot, character, setting, perspective and theme).
