Welcome Back!

Posted in Uncategorized on July 23, 2014 by blockwoo

Here we go… New class, new teammates and new responsibilities. I am very excited for this year to commence as there are so many fun and exciting things to come. This year the focus will be on our students and staff being champions and putting an emphasis on the Hall of Fame in which are students and teachers fall. All of us have worked so hard and prepared for this year to be the greatest and the best. We are adapting a new framework this year called Beyond Textbooks and this will create a path for our school to succeed best. I am looking forward to big things happening this year and can’t wait for it to begin!

Although it may sound weird, the Lockwood Crew is tying up all of the standards from reading and putting it into a fun and exciting puppet play. They were asked to create a script with characters, setting, conflict, hero/villan, beginning, middle and end, as well as  a moral or lesson. They were told to make their own puppets and will perform in front of the class later this week.

Have you ever done a puppet show before? What was your favorite part? Ask the crew what they thought of this culminating activity to the year!

Paper Books Vs. E-Books

Posted in Uncategorized on March 7, 2014 by blockwoo

Mr. Lockwood’s class has discussed the similarities and differences between E-Books and Regular old paper books. What do you think? Should we transition to all E-books in our public and school libraries or should we stick with tradition and stay with the large cases of the good old paper book?
