The 2014 Massachusetts Children’s Book Award contest had begun!


The 2014 Massachusetts Children’s Book Award contest had begun!  Fourth and fifth graders have been introduced to all 25 nominees and have checked out all 75 copies! 



Both grades have watched book trailers, films about Myrmecology (and that was a completely new word to me!), had great discussions about why ants walk in a line, and debated whether or not sharks could live in fresh water. 


We will be conducting research on these subjects over the next month and creating games and movie trailers to promote High Plain’s participation in the MCBA contest.   We’ll be checking in every now and then with new discoveries and results of our school’s MCBA election.
