We celebrated with a gallery walk. The pictures revealed each students "collaborator" in their art piece from the other class.
Library, books, art = INTEGRATION
2nd graders designing their own DAZZLE SHIPS
LIFE DOESN'T FRIGHTEN US AT ALL!
Osmo Masterpiece has been a big hit at lunch library recess. Osmo uses a base and reflective mirror on the iPad camera to reflect an image back at you. When finished, each piece is set to time-lapse... see the videos below!
Adding KEVA PLANKS to lunch library recess has given students the opportunity to expand their creativity when it comes to structures.
Over the course of 8 weeks the 4th and 5th graders were engaged in a unit that involved:
Having the opportunity to share their inventions with their classmates in a conference style gallery walk!
Check out some of the sketch notes from Mr. Gifford's class.
Check out some of the sketch notes from Ms. Betz's class.
Check out some of the sketch notes from Ms. Scott's class.
The Buckman Library was gifted this awesome "tinker camp" cart from another library at the end of last year.
We have been taking advantage of all the "Recyclables" and "Trash" that people throw out and turning it into our own inventions. Getting inspired by THESE awesome books, some classes have been creating inventions!

(we also got really into Emily Arrow's song!)
Ms. Rudnick and other library helpers will keep you updated on awesome student work happening in the Buckman Community of Learners.
