Caviness's 3rd grade students planted seeds imbedded
in biodegradable greeting cards (they soaked the
paper overnight and tore into small pieces). They
discussed how the paper would disappear and why.
Each student measured and graphed the growth of
their plant every Wednesday for four weeks. This
project correlated with Ch. 2 page 70 How do plants

Reading Night was a huge success! Lots of fun,
games, and reading happened!
The Book Walk, similar to a cake
walk without the cake, offered young children the
opportunity to participate by stepping on pictures
to win a book of their choice. There was a
reading area that allowed the children to read a
book and add a spider to the spider web wall- they
also received a spider ring! The children
could build spiders out of peanut butter, crackers
and pretzels, they could illustrate the next page in
a haunted house book, and there was a crossword
puzzle to finish! Famous Illustrator Tim
Raglin joined us to autograph copies of his books.
We also had a toddler area for children to play.
Parents and children had the opportunity to write an
acrostic poem using their last name. Door prizes
upon completion of the activities.
Cat in the Hat was there!
Zero the Hero was
there! But best of all, there were lots of families there!
