Marvelous Thinkers Welcome
Aspen Elementary School 2018/2019
Whether it be Kindergarten, High School or University- here are some motivational texts to pass on to the grads. Congrats are in order and what a great way to say it, but with a book!
This one is no surprise, but a classic. Another fun idea- have teachers sign it from each year. That way you can chronicle their time in school with fun notes from all their different teachers.
Dallas Clayton certainly knows how to put together an awesome book. Brilliant hand drawn illustrations focusing on the dreams we have and all we should be thankful for.
A book about nurturing ideas and making your creativity flow! Isn't that ultimately our greatest wish for kids, grads, anyone!
A book about all the things you'd wish for in a young graduate. The things that make the world spin, not just academics or extra curricular activities, but kindness, friendship, courage and love. One that is sure to pull at the heart springs and work for any aged graduate.
Beautiful Oops is all about turning mistakes into something beautiful. "When you think you've made a mistake, think about it as an opportunity to turn it into something beautiful." We've all been there, but what if we changed our thinking and used mistakes to learn and grow, perhaps become someone even stronger or better than before. This is the perfect book for realizing the potential in every action and how despite the outcome, every experience can be beautiful.
A book about all the things, small and large that make our stomachs turn. What it takes to get through them is always the same, courage. A favorite for adults or kids because we can all identify with those moments.
Kelly OBranovic has spent years in first grade teaching kids to read! It's one of her favorite things to do!
For quite some time now, Sara Reveal has been teaching at Aspen Elementary School--and loves it! She has taught first and second grades in the past, and now enjoys teaching literacy. While being passionate about helping children find their love of learning, Sara is especially determined to help students cultivate a feeling of joy and wonder when reading.
Lauren loves everything that has to do with kids and numbers! Her motto... "Math, No Problem!"
