This week students were invited to watch the video of Mrs. Marsh taking off on her rocket ship and showing them how to make planets, the moon, and stars. Then, students got creative and tried it themselves! This maker space activity and the ones from the next few weeks will help students prepare for our end-of-year celebration: Out of this World Wescott!

For the past several years, more Wescott students have sign up for, and completed the Summer Reading program at the Northbrook Public Library! Let’s make SURE we keep our streak going and keep kids reading over the summer!!!
Ms. Sarah is going to join me during my daily open library times the week of 5/18 to talk to the kids about the modified program they are doing this year. PLEASE ENCOURAGE YOUR STUDENTS TO ATTEND!!!
Poetry Cafe looked different this year, but it was still a success! We are finishing up one more class today, but so far the kids have done an amazing job! Thanks to everyone who has participated so far! Special thanks to Mrs. Marsh, Mrs. Fee, Ms. Stevens, Mrs. Keesbury, Ms. Davis, Mrs. Anderson, Ms. Pilker, Mrs. Nadel, Mrs. Bahn, Ms. Gerhardt, & Dr. Brown for participating live or with a video. The kids LOVED seeing you!
In the craziness of the shutdown, I forgot to post our Book Madness winners to my Blog! Students and teachers already heard the announcement via Twitter, Seesaw, and Smore, but for those of you who haven’t heard …
Book Madness Grades 1-2: Congrats to The Book With No Pictures! When we get back to school I will purchase a copy for each 1-2 classroom.
Book Madness Grades 3-5: Congrats to Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus! When we get back to school I will purchase a copy for each 1-2 classroom.
Some kids have been asking if they could see me more, so starting next week I am offering OPTIONAL open library times each day by grade level. I can check in with kids on their assignments and/or read a story. I will email teachers the class code and share it via Seesaw.
- 1st-grade: Monday 11-11:30
- 2nd-grade: Tuesday 11-11:30
- 3rd-grade: Wednesday 11-11:30
- 4th-grade: Thursday: 11-11:30
- 5th-grade: Friday 11-11:30
I will still plan on coming to your individual class meetings as well! Teachers, contact me if you want to get me on your schedule!
REMINDER: I have added more resources to the list of free eReading & Audiobook Resources for our students. CHECK IT OUT! (Please note, if a source was cumbersome to use, I did not include it).
This is shared weekly with students in the Library section of the Specials Assignments document.
3rd-5th-graders, it is Poetry Month! You can read a poetry book during the closure or watch my “Poem of the Day” videos on Seesaw to earn the next stamp on your passports!
