This week many of our classes have been reading Have You Filled a Bucket Today by Carol McCloud & David Messing.  Our friends in the Yellow Room extended the learning by making
Valentines to mail to each other in the big blue mailbox.  The children really enjoyed "filling up each other's buckets" with messages of friendship & love.

If you have never read this book along with your child, you would enjoy its wonderful lesson about encouragement!  We highly recommend it!

In media center this week, the children are enjoying books by Jan Brett, acclaimed author and illustrator of children's picture books for 30 years!  Perhaps you parents remember her beautiful artwork in The Mitten, The Hat or The Gingerbread Baby, a clever adaption of an old classic tale. We love our media center parent volunteers!  "Thank you" for sharing your love of literature with us!
