The City of Ember by: Jeanne DuPrau

Imagine what it would be like if you lived in a city underground. It would be a very, very, limited life, right? That's what it's like to live in Ember. It's a grand city that has hundreds of people that don't even know what the sun is! But they survive with 1 light source, the generator. If it's not working, then the city can get 'blackouts' and none of the lights work. But two people believe that there is another city. Doon Harrow and Lina Mayfleet. As they try to escape Ember, They read a map made by the Builders, but Lina's very sick grandma tears it up. Do Lina and Doon make it out of Ember, or does the evil mayor catch them? Read The City of Ember to 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 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".
