Take a Peek in Our LRC
Our doors are open, take a peek inside!
Here's a peek in our next themed Makerspace lunch. I cannot wait to share this topic with the students!
Our pizza box green screen filming is BACK! Miss Sullivan's class has been hard at work writing their own fairy tales. These incredible tales were published using a pizza box and the user friendly Do Ink app. It was such an incredible experience to push in to help publish these. The students are so proud of their hard work and I think it shows through on every video. It's time to get out the red carpet for these authors, illustrators, and puppeteers!
Someone recently asked me why I haven't been updating my blog that much this year. To be honest, I just haven't made the time so this post contains a little bit of everything that we've been doing in our library. Hope you enjoy!
Third grade students have been learning how our library is organized and practicing finding books and materials independently. (I-SAIL Standards 1 and 4). It takes a lot of practice but it is an essential skill for continuous life long learning. Anyone up for another round of the library’s version of Flippy Bottle?
During the month of December, we are partnering with our two local libraries to showcase their subscriptions services, materials to check out or use inside the library, and events. We launched the series of lessons with the oven mitt challenge and I think students will be pleasantly surprised with what our libraries have to offer us. We're referring to our library card as the Golden Ticket (think Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory) because it is such an incredible and valuable resource in our community. Hope to see everyone at the library soon!
I'm very late posting but recently our First grade students partnered with a third grade buddy to share the research findings about pumpkins. Together we created these amazing three dimensional pumpkins to showcase our research (first grade) and our amazing typing and Google navigating (third grade) skills!
There's s'more good books added to our collection! This year we featured our 2018 Illinois Nominees a little differently. We moved the tables and set up a "campfire" so that students could have the time and space to examine each nominee. These nominated titles are unique and great reads so I'm not surprised that these new titles flew off the shelves!
I'm a working parent. I'd love the opportunity to peek into my children's learning community but time and schedules don't always allow that. I'm hoping this blog will allow you to peek in our LRC so that you get a glimpse of all the fun and learning taking place.
