Lewis and Clark's Annual Reading Adventure Nights

Each year I host two Reading Adventure for 1st and 2nd grade and one for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. This year nearly 300 students stayed until 7:30 on two Friday nights to participate. During the evening, the kiddos went to five activity rooms, enjoyed a snack and pizza dinner, and listened to an amazing storyteller. A HUGE thank you goes out to parents who provided the paper products, soda, juice, and cookies for the night. Another HUGE shout out to the parent volunteers who helped organize the snacks and those who served pizza and drinks. Also, HUGE thanks to the LC staff members who stayed the night and volunteered their time running the classroom activities. Last, but surely not least, HUGE thanks to our LC PTA who pays for our storyteller and pizza...the big expenses of the evening. I could not offer these evenings without the help of ALL these groups.

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…

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.

The Making Of An Elementary MakerSpace

So much has happened at Lewis and Clark since the end of May.  The library received a grant from the Liberty School District Foundation in the amount of nearly $8,000.00 to be spent on creating a MakerSpace.  Since being awarded that grant, my brain has not shut off.  I have been busy planning for great experiences, purchasing materials, and getting donations for our MakerSpace!
I knew that we needed a MakerSpace when I didn't have the resources my students needed and wanted during Genius Hour.  
Our MakerSpace will be located in the reading resource room in the library.  It will be very easy to access everything we need when we need it!  This is what the room has looked like at various stages during the summer months.

 Mrs. Carey and I relocated all the books in the picture below and our fabulous custodial staff has cleared out everything else.  

I was fortunate to find 3 shelves hanging around storage closets that will now be used in the space.  Thanks to Mrs. Carey for uncover…
