It's almost never silent here!

Available to help plan and assist

It is my job to help teachers and students. I would really like to work with more of you as you see a need. If there is a time when I can come to be part of your planning, please let me know.

Google Classroom

As the ELA teachers know, I used their Google classrooms to share a library orientation video and quiz with our students. My first attempt at "flipping" the library. The students practiced taking notes as they watched the video. We all loved it. It saved my voice during the first 2 weeks of school and I got good feedback on what students learned in an easy to read format. If you'd like to see, let me know. I also enjoyed looking out and seeing myself multiplied many fold as they worked.

BRMS Election Coming

With the election coming up, I would like to model the election process with our students. Four years ago, homerooms were assigned states and students voted as states. As I remember, Mitt Romney won by a landslide. I'm working on something similar for this year. Here are 2 links to online electoral maps that you may find interesting. and

Our digital magazine, Cobblestone, also has an issue from last year about the Presidents with articles about recent Presidents, a crossword puzzle, and a trivia game. I have a reminder about how to link to that and other magazines below.
