I have two amazing resources to share with you. The first is a Book Bingo game that was created by Joey Nice. I love how this resource pushes your readers to expand their book palate. The second is lesson written by teacher Sarah Moilanen. Sarah has created a hyperdoc that has a book survey, do now activity, and then a review of the Unbound program. We hope you find these resources useful! Thank you all so much for sharing!

Unbound Podcast: Week One by CEEAS

January 30th

Happy Monday!!


The books are on their way! I have heard from a few schools that have not gotten their books. Please do not worry. I emailed Scholastic this morning to get the tracking document but a lot of schools have already reached out to say their books have arrived.


A huge shoutout to the five schools: Breathitt, North Dakota YCC, CES- Gandara Alternative Options, Owensboro Day Treatment, and McCracken who have submitted pictures for our Best Picture Contest! Keep 'em coming!


Below you will find the teams for Unbound. One team will win a prize for having the highest accumulative score. The schools on that team will get an Unbound trophy! I have seen a lot of excitement around the teams...teachers including their team in their signature line, I love it! Keep rocking that team spirit!


Shout Outs: This year we want to hear from you! Share with us stories about students who deserves a shoutout for their participation, enthusiasm, creativity, engagement, team spirit, etc. We will add your shoutout to the podcast and recognize them. Click here to submit a shout out.


I will send an email Wednesday morning with the podcast link. Don't forget to tune in on Thursday for our LIVE drawing for our quiz winner from the podcast. Click here to tune in!

One more week until we start! Here are some updates based on questions you have been emailing me.



  • Yes, your students can read anything! Books, Magazines, Newspapers, Graphic Novels...they do NOT need to stick to the bundle of books that we are sending you.
  • Tomorrow we will pick teams...click here to watch the team selection LIVE (you can watch it LIVE at 10am (CST) or view anytime after 10am (CST)).
  • Books should arrive by the end of the day Friday January 27th...email me (kcrawford@ceeas.org) if you have not received your books Friday.
  • If you are using the Firefox Browser you may have a hard time downloading files. If this happens, you can email me and I will send them to you or use Chrome or Internet Explorer instead.

Howdy!


We will be using this S'more for our email updates this year. The great thing about the S'more is that it will keep all the past information on the same page. If you forget something you just come back here and scroll down! I have updated the teacher video for 2017. We have a lot of new features and I would really encourage you to watch it prior to starting Unbound. The website has been updated for this year, too! The books are shipping RIGHT NOW! Don't forget to email me a picture of your school receiving the books. Be creative! One school will be featured on Scholastic's website!!!
