#justfinishedreading A Single Bead. Faith can move mountains, but can it mend families? Can it stand up to grief and doubt? The power of the Rosary is illustrated in this novel by Stephanie Engleman. -------------------- Katelyn and her extended family are in varying stages of grief as they gather to mark the first anniversary of the death of their gentle matriarch, Kate's grandmother. It's been a difficult year for all. But most notably for Kate's own mother who has spent the previous year growing distant from her family. During the memorial, Kate finds herself drawn away from the crowd to a nearby stand of trees. There something amazing happens. Kate finds a bead from her grandmother's Rosary on the ground. Specifically it is the bead with Kate's own initials. Overwhelmed with this discovery, she is hesitant to share it with her family. Instead, she shares it with a stranger and learns of another bead and the powerful protection the finder believes it delivered to her. With encouragement from her cousin/bf, Kate tells her parents about it. Instead of bringing healing, it seems to deepen her mother's depression. Through it all, Kate discovers for herself the beauty of praying the Rosary and the power of the Blessed Mother as an intercessor. But what good is all that if her own mother is slipping further and further from her?
A #2hourdelay isn't going to spoil our plans! Our #authorvisit from #GordonKorman was a great success! Mr. Korman was entertaining and informative. The students in grades 3 through 6 were a wonderful audience. They would have stayed through lunchtime if we'd let them. Thank you @hoorayforbooks for this fantastic opportunity, and @itz_momo_drumz for the terrific intro. @harpercollinsus
We can't let #volunteerappreciationday go by without thanking our awesome #libraryvolunteers ! Thank you to weekly volunteers, Mrs. Lebarron, Mrs. Lori Roberts, Mrs. Poku, Mrs. Plante, Mrs. Costa, Mrs. Blake, Mrs. Andries, and Mrs. Pam Roberts! The library wouldn't run so smoothly without you. Also thanks to the many book fair and pumpkin contest volunteers who make special events extra special. We're #blessed to have all of you.
Our first two 1st graders to achieve their AR goal this year are Abigail and Sean! Since this picture was taken, Connor reached his goal, too! See you in two weeks for lunch in the library.
Josh's @steelers may not be Super Bowl bound this year, but they inspired his #drseusshat design! Congrats to Josh and the other 23 #anseagles in grades 1 through 5 who achieved their @renaissancelearning #argoal for the second quarter. Tomorrow is the last day to try! 3rd quarter begins on Monday.
I love our #flippity game show! 5th grade finished their library read-aloud novel, "The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane" last week. Today, 5B split into 4 teams for a super competitive round of the Edward Tulane Game. Kind of like #jeopardy but without the form-of-a-question answers. Team 4 (Jewellz, Noah, Nicole, and Andrew) racked up the points to get first place. The each won a #brandnewcar ! JK. They won bookmarks. 😁 It's 5-A's turn tomorrow!
Hey #anseagles ! Another amazing author is coming to our school! Gordon Korman will visit students in grades 3 through 6 on Wednesday, February 7. He's going to tell us all about his new book, "Super Gifted"! But students in all grades can buy his books, and he'll sign them. Prior to his arrival, we're selling books from three of his series; Ungifted, Masterminds, and Swindle. If you don't have an order form, get one from Mrs. Renner. Paid orders must be received by Friday, February 2 in order to be signed. Thank you to our friends at @hoorayforbooks for bringing us this awesome opportunity!
#justfinishedreading Garvey's Choice by Nikki Grimes. Nikki Grimes gives us another beautiful novel in verse. This time, it's entirely in Tanka, a classical Japanese genre consisting of 31 syllables. Japanese tradition presents Tanka in one unbroken line. In modernized versions, it's five lines with the syllabic breakdown being 5, 7, 5, 7, 7. -------------------- There is much more to Garvey than meets the eye. He's a reader, a chess player, an aspiring astronomer, a singer, and a loyal friend. But most people only see his size. Chunk Fatso Mister Tubs The hurt caused by words is real. But the hurt caused by his father, distancing himself from a son he doesn't understand, causes Garvey more pain than insulting nicknames. Garvey soothes that pain with food. Then, thanks to his true (and only) friend, Joe, Garvey finds a way to maybe get others to see the real him. But what if it doesn't work? Can he accept himself even if others can't?
