Weekly Minute Update: 108,024 Minutes Read!

Sippican School – how are you this week?  Congratulations on reaching 100,000 minutes for our summer challenge!  When I checked this evening, we had read for 108,024 minutes.  This is awesome.  Keep up the great work!  

ImageWhat are you reading this week?  I’ve finished three books this week.  One that my son (Isaac) and I liked a lot was Have You Seen My New Blue Shoes? by Eve Bunting.  It’s on the first grade reading list this summer.  He asks for it several times a day!  It tells the story of a cute little duck who can’t find his new socks.  Can you guess where they are?

Congratulations, again, and write a comment if you’re reading a book you love!

This Week @ the Library: Build a Fairy House

Happy Monday, everyone!  I hope you have all found some great books to read for this week.  If you haven’t, stop by and visit with Mrs. Grey at the Elizabeth Taber Library.  She’s got some great suggestions for you!  Speaking of the E.T. Library, have you signed up for the weekly event for this Wednesday?  On July 17, the event is “Build a Fairy House”!  It will be at 2pm at the Music Hall.  I’d love to see pictures once you’ve finished.

This weekend I read “The Worm Whisperer” by Betty Hicks.  It’s on the fourth grade reading list. Has anyone checked it out?  After I read it, I wondered if there are towns that really have woolly worm races.  Are there really prizes?  That would make a good research question!

*Weekly Minute Update*: 91,805 minutes Read!

Ladies and Gentleman of Sippican School – we are doing AWESOME with our summer reading!  Check out our new total for logged minutes – 91,805 minutes!  Remember, you can always login to your account and log minutes from last week in case you forgot.  Is anyone reading a book that you just love?  Comment about it here!

I’m reading Navigating Early by Clare Vanderpool.  It’s on the reading list for sixth grade, and is an amazing story about a boy who takes a really dangerous trip into the woods – tracking a giant black bear.  Has anyone read that yet?  What did you think?
