I Wonder...Where did the game Rock Paper Scissors come from?

This week in library we are reading "The Legend of Rock Paper Scissors" by Drew Daywalt.  This is a fun book! I hope you all enjoy learning about these warriors! Remember I told you about the website to learn more about this battle game?  It's always great to wonder about things as you read entertaining books.  Check this out and see what you think.

Challenge: Be a Book Worm this Year!

This week in library we got to look around at all the fun treats & I was happy to see that MOST kids really do think that READING IS A TREAT!  I think our Forbes students were a little disappointed that most all of the treats in the library were fake.  I hope you guys all forgave me when I fed you a gummy worm as you were checking out your books!  Let this be proof that every student that ate a gummy worm promised to be a book worm this year!  I found this cool Wonderopolis on book worms.  Click Here to read all about it.  Remember...it's always cool to WONDER!

Happy Summer!! Are You Reading?

Hey My Favorites! Look what just came out today! The Land of Stories 6! It's the last in the series.  If you haven't read a book this summer, start this series! It is awesome.  I read the first one a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it.  These books are so quick paced that if you struggle to get into a book, this could be a great choice for you.  Boys, if you are thinking this is a girly fairy tale book, you are wrong.  These books are full of adventure.  I miss all of you and am working hard on library things this summer thinking about all of you.  Keep Reading and I will see you in almost a month!

"CHEWS" to Read This Summer!!

This week in library we are learning about the invention of bubble gum and how bubble gum could get you in some trouble if you don't follow the rules!  Check out the book Pop! The Invention of Bubblegum by Meghan McCarthy and Trouble Gum by Matthew Cordell.  Here's a secret, we might be chewing gum in the library while we listen to the story.  Don't tell Miss Jones. :) 

Along with these great books, I want you to remember to read this summer.  I want you to CHEWS to read so that you don't lose any of your progress from the school year.  So, if you have some free time this summer, before you grab the TV remote or the XBox controller, CHEWS to read!! I promise, the more you read, the better you will get, and the more you will love reading.   

Here is a graphic about reading 20 minutes a day:
