During library visits this month I will be reading about nighttime and the night sky food, and gratitude. Specific selections can be found on the Weekly Readalouds page of this website.
Last month 3rd grade and I enjoyed reading The Bake Shop Ghost, by Jacqueline Ogburn. A pdf of its recipe for "Ghost-Pleasing Chocolate Cake" is below. Mrs. Cannon's class suggested that the authors of The President of the Jungle should write a sequel, so we've sent letters to the authors inquiring about this possibility. I'll let you know when we hear back! Fifth-grade students who are researching explorers should be sure not to use the website "All About Explorers" as a reference. It is a teaching tool that is full of incorrect information (which is pretty funny so long as you know it is not a reliable source!). Finally, if you have not yet joined the Pennekamp PTA, and are financially able, I suggest you consider doing so. The Pennekamp PTA funds many wonderful educational benefits enjoyed by our students, including almost all the books our library purchases. I am very grateful for the PTA's support.
