Grade One – Turkey Trouble Projects

First grade students read Turkey Trouble by Wendi Silvano last week. They then practiced using Buncee to disguise their own turkey. Here are a few of their creations!

Buncee Ambassador!

I don’t know about you, but this fall has flown by! As the air turns colder and we look ahead to holiday time, I want to give thanks for all of the fabulous library activity this fall:

  • Maker Mondays (book character pumpkins!)
  • Rubik’s Cube Group
  • International Dot Day Celebrations in September
  • Skype with Author Kate Messner (grades 3 and 4)
  • Skype with Author Shira Boss (grade 2)
  • 2 new library volunteers
  • 2 new hermit crabs
  • Being accepted as a Buncee Ambassador!

We love using Buncee at Sippican, and I’m excited to learn more about this fabulous digital tool. Stay tuned!

Welcome Back!

I’m looking forward to seeing all of you in the library over the next week! It was a fabulous summer and I can’t wait to hear all about the amazing books you read. In the meantime feel free to bring in your reading calendars. I have an orange basket at the front of the library to collect them. I also have a library wish list for anyone who is interested in picking one up! We are looking for many different types of donations:

  • used t-shirts (clean, please)
  • adhesives of all kinds
  • coffee filters
  • old greeting cards

Just to name a few! Stop by if you have questions. Hope you’ve all had a great first few days of school and I’m looking forward to beginning a year of exploration with you!
