Hi everyone! I hope you had a fun and safe Halloween. November is one of my favorite months because we celebrate Thanksgiving. While I love feasting with my family, many of you may not know that Thanksgiving has a very rich history. Check out the below video to learn a little about the history of Thanksgiving.
In first grade we have been learning about Fairy Tales. In library, we talked about different elements of a Fairy Tale and what they have in common. Here are some of the elements we came up with:
Watch the story of Rapunzel below. Can you find any of the Fairy Tale elements?

As part of Milford's "One City, One Story" project, we were able to Skype with the author of our elementary book Wilma Unlimited, Kathleen Krull. All of third grade was able to chat with her in the media center where Mrs. Krull joined us all the way from California! It was so much fun! Click here to visit her website and check out some of the other amazing books she has written.
Check out the book trailers the 5th graders have been working on! We used a website called Animoto. Students had a great time with this project. Click here to view their work, or go to "student work" in the toolbar to your left. Enjoy!
Soon April showers will bring May flowers. Grab a good book and a blanket and doing some outdoor reading.
Today is a very special day for reading. Each year on March 2nd, we honor Dr. Seuss's birthday by celebrating reading! Schools all across the country participate in an event called Read Across America. We call it Read Across Mathewson. We had assemblies, guest readers, and special reading events and activities happening all over the school all day long. In the library, we were lucky enough to have a visit from Dr. Feser, our superintendent, and two Firefighters from the Milford Fire Department. Thank you for coming to read to us!
