My students love the Elephant and Piggie series by Mo Williems. They always ask me to read those books to them and are constantly checking those books out of the library. It is awesome to see them so excited about reading. Today we made our very own Piggie and Gerald and had a lot of fun doing it!

Sign up NOW for Battle of the Books

Battle of the Books is a program to get kids reading. Not only books they like, but good books they might not pick up because they are outside their normal reading interests. Students are given a list of 20 books. They can read as many as they want. Reading all of them is not required. They may read the books themselves, listen to the books from a digital platform such as audible or a CD, or a parent or other person may read the books to them. They are placed on teams and in March or April, in a trivia style tournament they battle.

Today students were encouraged to walk to school or ride their bikes or scooters as we finished off our Health Week.  Lots of students and their parents participated!  The kids had fun running through the obstacle course, too, and the rain held off just perfectly!  Students also wore exercise or sport clothing to remind them to be healthy.
