As we start to check out books, it's important that we learn how to take care of them. This year we introduced Congress Park's first uh-oh bag. Students brainstormed the many ways books get damaged and our top reasons books get destroyed here at Congress Parks. To expand the lesson on the importance of book care to the upper grades, students willingly participated in a cookie challenge. These fourth grade students may never look at an Oreo the same way twice.
I'm a working parent. I'd love the opportunity to peek into my children's learning community but time and schedules don't always allow that. I'm hoping this blog will allow you to peek in our LRC so that you get a glimpse of all the fun and learning taking place.
