Book Review: Swish


When most people think of basketball they think of Lebron James or Kobe Bryant flying in for a dunk. But in Swish, the Quest for Basketball's Perfect Shot it talks about the other shots that maybe you don't normally see. It also talks about the great moments in basketball history like when Christian Laettner hauled down a 70 foot pass from Grant Hill, turned, dribbled and then put up a shot. Swish! It also talks about the different shots that you see every day. This book talks about the amazing records that people have set and some that might never be broken. Here is a cool fact you may read about...The record for most free throws in a row is 97 that was set by Michael Williams in 1992-93 to 1993-94. In all, this book talks about the lighter side of basketball.

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".
