September 16th #DotDay
Mrs. Lawrence and I read Peter Reynold's book "The Dot" and then had students create art based on our essential question, "How will you make your mark on the world?" Then we shared our work with a global audience through Skype and GHO!
#ReadfortheRecord - Oct. 21st 2014
Read for the Record is a campaign to highlight the importance of reading and early education. We participated by walking Mrs. Robertson's 6th grade LEAP students to Prairie Trail and buddy reading with 40 Kindergartners. Mrs. Ross's 8th grade students used Facetime to small group read to 40 Pre-K students!
Maker Monday Origami and Brushbot Wars
Advisory is one of my favorite times of the day because kids come in to study, check out books, and even make stuff! Thanks for letting them come to the library!
Pathfinders for Research
Mr. Phan and Mrs. Rhoades brought 6th Contemporary World students to research Latin American countries. I built them a pathfinder to help guide student research and taught them advanced Google search techniques!
Mrs. Carpenter's and Mrs. Ross's 8th grade History students learn how to use Advanced Google Operators to research more effectively.
