Very neat to see second graders having voice and choice using a variety of tools (Wixie, BookCreator, Slides, WeVideo and more!) to collaborate and provide feedback to each other as they create a library of resources to help others learn about matter!

What an end to Read Across America!

Students had the opportunity to meet with author Jerry Pallotta virtually in the morning, then wrapped the day up by dropping everything and reading together (both in person and distance students) to finish the day.

We are excited to welcome a student favorite, author Jerry Pallotta, virtually to Waxpool Elementary School tomorrow! Students can join in using the link on their Library Schoology page.
