AES Library News this week: Books galore at the AES Library is what it’s all about.  Besides checking books out this week during Library time the 8th Graders worked on their 2016 Yearbook and the 7th Graders worked on a Spring Word Search.  Grades 4, 5 and 6 are in the midst of a science project about trying to turn a coloring page into a see through stain glass effect art project by using several different kinds of coloring mediums (pencils, crayons, markers)  Everyone is looking forward to see which if any work.  Grades 2 and 3 heard Library Treasure “Dandelion”, written and illustrated by Don Freeman and wrote a book slip for a chance to win a bike and worked on their lion packets.  1st Graders also read the story “Dandelion”, filled out a Reading for Bikes slip and did a color by number lion paper and had sometime to peruse book boxes, a favorite pastime.  Pre-K and Kindergarten also heard “Dandelion” by Don Freeman, along with “Quick as a Cricket”, written by Audrey Wood, both books dealt with being me.  The kids then did the color by number lion page and sang several songs, “Where is Thumbkin”, “Itsy Bitsy”, “Spider” and “Mary had a Little Lamb”.
