After researching Chicago landmarks and creating posters to showcase their knowledge, third graders got to play Chicago-opoly this week. They loved playing on the giant game board to learn from one another about other Chicago landmarks. (Well, except the part when they had to GO TO JAIL!)
We had a wonderful afternoon in the Dryden LMC on Saturday with the raffle winners of our doll party!
Award winning author and illustrator Peter Brown is visiting Dryden on Tuesday, April 11th to talk to students about his books and the processes of writing and illustrating! Visit his website to learn more about him and his books. He will also be visiting Arlington Heights Memorial Library on Wednesday, April 12 from 7:00-8:30.
Take a look at some of the themes and messages we found in Peter Brown's books! It was fun to contribute to a collaborative word cloud and watch the popular themes grow bigger.
We've been having so much fun getting ready for our visit by Peter Brown. After reading Mr. Tiger Goes Wild, we had a blast with an interactive Nearpod lesson using the iPads. We posted our thought about the book to share with the class, drew pictures of Mr. Tiger going wild, answered question about the book, and even "went wild" on a virtual field trip to the jungle!
We are getting excited about our visit from Peter Brown April 11th! The fifth graders explored Peter's website to learn about how he became an award winning author and illustrator. They also read many of his picture books to explore common themes and messages in his books.
Congratulations to some amazing second grade readers! These dolphins read all 20 Monarch books and had an indoor recess in the LMC to celebrate. After playing games, they even helped up check in the books.
