Media Center News
* The media center should continue to be a hub for information. I would love it if classes scheduled times to be in here for things others than checking out books and doing Makerspaces. Think of the public library- you go there for several things- collaboration, research, reading, projects, etc. It's kind of nice to get out of the classroom sometimes to do work! So use the schedule and get in here more often!
* My goals for collaboration are to work with classes I haven't had a chance to work with. Getting on my schedule doesn't mean we have to do a full fledged project- I could be a resource to you and the kids as you see fit. E-mail me to chat!
* Provide more resources for you. I LOVE putting together resources for the kids and you. If someone comes to me and needs books or online resources for a specific topic I usually follow this process:
` Look at our library
` Look at our digital resources
` Look at other schools
` Look at the public library
` Look online
Once I find a good amount of quality resources I will e-mail you with a list! I LOVE this!
So I hope you find my goals in line with something you would like to accomplish this year. Let's do this!

Here's a TIP:
I am currently doing a book club with some 2nd graders and we chose an I Survived Book and are doing research along with the book about The Great Chicago Fire. It's a great opportunity to incorporate both. The group then plans to share a presentation with the class about the book and their research
