Pumpkins...Extremely Ripe!

In October 2009, the library highlight was fairy tales, folk tales, and tall tales. Students learned wheremost of these books are located in our library. Displays were used to encourage student checkout.

Outside of school, Meadow Wood students could decorate pumpkins for the annual Pumpkin Decorating Contest sponsored by our art teacher. The library benefited from the wonderful entries which made for an attention-getting display. This year's winner was Thumbelina.

Students learned to gallery walk--hands behind back which encouraged the use of words rather than pointing--so they could discuss the artists' creations with other students. Take your own gallery walk by viewing the animoto below.
