Summer Reading and Response Journals

Mrs. Lockwood and our Language Arts teachers organized an afternoon of sharing and reflection time for all our summer readers this past Friday. Everyone met in the gym to calculate just how many books, articles, blog posts, etc. were read over the summer. The students then met with their buddies to individually share their journal entries. This follow up to the summer reading program supported the value of sharing one's learning thus further supporting our learning community. 

Teachers also spent their summer listening to podcasts, reading newspaper articles and reflecting through their journal entries. Mr. Carpenter created an online journal as he wishes he had the penmanship and artistic ability of our students!
