Book Review-The Big One-Oh

It all started when dad sent me the birthday card a month early(like always). Those 10 words I will never forget...What are you going to do for your big day?... This thrilling ride through the Big One-Oh roller coaster has its ups, it has its downs, but you never get off until the big day! Charley Maplewood is turning 10,when he finally meets his crazy neighbor Garry Quarky. He learns that he was a retired effects man, and that inspires Charley to have a house of horror birthday with all the wrong people. The two school bullies, three girly girls that care more about nails than themselves, and more party goer's! Can Charley pull this off without the grownups finding out? Read The Big One-Oh by Dean Pitchford and find out!

I love The Big One-Oh because it is just a ordinary day and Charlie`s dad sends him a monster G Maniacs comic book as usuall. His dad is like a month early and now he has to come up with a birthday theme and find friends. Can he do it before his big day arrives? Read this book and you will find out.

Dash Fashion Show

Earlier this Spring, my 2nd graders added a little creative flair to our robotics unit...we decked Dash out in the latest fashions!  The kids put their designs on paper, created patterns out of newspaper, and then worked on their final projects.   What a fun way to end our robotics  study.

ISTE 2017

I recently returned from my first ISTE lived up to ALL my expectations!  For years I have heard about what an amazing learning adventure ISTE is and I am so glad I got the chance to experience it first hand with friends.  
San Antonio was a fabulous city.  I loved visiting the Alamo and seeing the River Walk in person.  I loved spending time with 4 other librarians from my district and I loved trying a couple of new things that pushed me out of my comfort zone. We participated in a Global Collaboration Network Scavenger Hunt.  The first part took us all around the convention center (we totally rocked that part) the second part took us out onto the streets of San Antonio (we totally didn't rock that part) but we did have fun, made it to the final destination, and we didn't come in last! We also attended (not participated in) the Ed Tech Karaoke event at the beautiful Aztec Theater just off the River Walk.  It was so fun just watching!  People are so darn talented…

Adopt A Shelf

Each year the members of our Page Turner's book club adopt a shelf to take care of throughout the year.  The kids pick a shelf and we take a "shelfie" and post their photo on the shelf they claimed.  This group REALLY helps keep the shelves organized and looking good.  Plus each student gets to highlight the books from their shelf. 
Here are a few of our "shelfies".
