Media Center News
What's been going on?
Here are some lessons I've had the opportunity to teach in the past couple of months.
I have also been assisting Fran in the lab with research projects for 2nd-4th grades.
K- Earthworms/Earth Day
1st- AR/Punctuation/Zoo Animals/Alligators vs. Crocodiles
2nd- AR/Poetry (4C's)/Comparing Stories/Realistic Fiction/Butterflies
3rd- Pourquoi Folk Tales
4th- Point of View
5th- Comparing Multiple Accounts
Other media center happenings include Dr. Seuss stories for all, book fair fun (thank you for all your support), and a special "feeling lucky?" clover hunt for St. Patrick's Day.
I am always up for creating lessons like these at other times throughout the year to help reinforce what you are teaching in your classrooms. I am also up for collaborating on projects and helping with longer term things. Just let me know!
Q1- Q3 of this year: 20,972
Close to last year's but room to grow! Let me know if there is anything I can do to help make sure all students are checking out as much as they can for the next few weeks.
End of Year Business (Yes, already!!!)

Laptops and iPads can be kept for the summer, or you can turn them in for safe-keeping.
