Read Across America Poem

To pick up a book and read with a child.
You’re never too busy, too cool, or too hot,
To pick up a book and share what you’ve got.

In schools and communities,
Let’s gather around,
Let’s pick up a book,
Let’s pass it around.

There are kids all around you,
Kids who will need
Someone to hug,
Someone to read.

Come join us March 2nd
Your own special way
And make this America’s
Read to Kids Day.

Human Body Systems and Sway February 26-29

Welcome back from the break! I hope the time off put you into an energized state of mind as we head toward spring and the Milestones.

If you were able to continue your research on the organ system you selected prior to break, AWESOME! Two thumbs up. If you didn’t find the time to work on your project…no worries, today you can use the entire class time on TUESDAY to complete your notes, gather images, etc.


Your goals this week:

  1. Learn how to use the Microsoft app, Sway. Login to your Office365 account here to get started.
  2. Create a Sway using your notes and pictures from Cobb Digital Library (
  3. Don’t forget to include citations for all information and pictures in your Sway!

Human Body Systems Project

Use your time in the media center for research and note-taking on your organ system.

*Highly recommend you use February break to continue note-taking in Office365

***You will be coming back to the media center to learn how to create a Sway from your notes on Monday, February 26.***
