Global Read Aloud 2018 - Final Thoughts
A Boy Called Bat - Quizlet & Digital Breakout
Quizlet Live might be our new favorite activity. It takes reviewing and bumps it up to a brand new level. It randomly creates teams then within those teams, only one person has the correct answer. So they HAVE to work together. We used Quizlet Live for a review of A Boy Called Bat and had a blast!
Students also tried the Digital Breakout below inspired by the Global Read Aloud Book.

Turkey Trot Fun!
Breakout EDU games teach critical thinking, teamwork, complex problem-solving.
Since Thanksgiving week was a short one, we did a Turkey Trot Digital Breakout. We helped the turkey escape! So much fun working together on Digital Breakout EDU challenges during Learning Commons classes.
Coding, Coding, Coding!
Rolling Returns Celebration
Google Santa Tracker!
Use Google Santa Tracker to follow Santa Claus on Google Maps as he makes his journey around the world.
A student favorite every December!
Our goals are to:
- Get students excited about the library space and learning.
- Give students opportunities to work on engaging tasks.
- Provide spaces to work collaboratively, think critically and creatively.
Also, to transition to a place where students DO stuff, not simply a place where students GET stuff.
