    One School, One Book

    We are on week 3 of our shared reading of The One and Only Ivan. It is great to hear that so many students, families and staff are enjoying the book!

    We have been spending time in Library class learning more about Ivan and gorillas in general. We have gotten to see just how big Ivan's hands are through the book Actual Size by Steve Jenkins.  This week we have been comparing our arm span length to that of Ivan.  We then tried our hands at making messages the way Ivan did, by collaging them on smaller pieces of paper.

    We have gotten some more student drawings of Ivan returned to school. Let's get more back, and turn the hallway into an Ivan gallery.  Be an artist, like Ivan!!

    "I've always been an artist. I love drawing, 
    When I'm drawing a picture, I feel......quiet inside".
