August Book of the Month

The August book of the month is DREAM by Susan Bosak, illustrated by 15 artists. DREAM showcases the dreams of each of us as we progress along life’s journey. The author reminds us that everyone has a dream, and that dreams help give us direction and hope. Dreams are for the young and old. Pursuing our dreams helps to make the world a better place.
This year we are charged with dreaming BIG for our students and then working hard to help those dreams become reality.  Our students can do or be anything; we just have to equip them with the courage and determination to reach for the stars.  The ending activity for this book will have students decorate stars to illustrate their personality and write three dreams/goals on smaller stars.  Each mobile will hang from the ceiling in the hallway so students can see that their dreams are important to us and that we will help them reach for the stars and achieve those dreams.
