Landmark 2009


Lewis and Clark students don't just read for fun, we read for information as well. Each year we participate in a challenging game called Landmark. Each team involved picks one landmark anywhere in the world and writes 9 clues to help all of the other teams research and figure out their landmark. We play with teams from all over the world and at all grade levels. As a teacher librarian, I love the research and problem solving skills used in this game as well as fostering teamwork, perseverance, and thinking outside the box. The students become so engaged that they even ask to search for landmarks at home! What more can you ask for, students begging to learn outside the school day!

I really like Landmark because it's challenging and it's really cool because you compete with teams from around the world.

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 conference...it 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".
