Warm Up with Reading!

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a restful break. It's hard to believe it's 2015. To get us back into the swing of things I've included some links to our iPad cart sign up sheets and tips to the Chromebooks. Your cases should be arriving soon. I'll let you know when they get here.

So much is planned for this spring! We have an author visit with Charles R. Smith Jr. His visit is planned for Thursday, March 26. This will also be the day we have our Reading Celebration. More information will be coming about that soon.

The library is winding up the Reading the Nominees Challenge. However, there are still two more goals for 3rd, 4th, & 5th graders to meet, so continue to encourage your students. Please click here to find out more about this fun reading challenge. I will be hosting a reading challenge for students in grades K-2 starting at the end of the month and running until Valentine's Day. Just as before they will take a reading log home and have their parents sign and return to get a special surprise and a chance to win a "bigger" prize. More details to come at the end of the month.

Please let me know if there is anyway I can help! Have a great New Year!

iPads, Chromebooks, & Laptops Oh My!

It's exciting to see all the great things everyone is doing using the ipads. I would love to feature digital projects completed by different classes on the morning show and/ or the electronic bulletin boards. Just let me know.

Since the iPad carts are being checked out regularly I have changed the sign up sheet for January to accommodate everyone . Lets try to sign up by hours and see how this goes. This will enable everyone to use the carts when needed throughout the day. The sign up process is the same. To sign up you can click on the link above, access the sheet through the "shared with me" screen on your Google Drive, or through the library website, Teacher Resources Symbaloo. If you have any questions just let me know.

I hope everyone is enjoying their new Chromebooks. Your cases should be in when we return from winter break. If anyone has any questions just let me or Cindy Hughes know. I will be offering some Chromebook sessions when we return. Look for a sign up sheet to be coming.

Don't get rid of your laptop cords! Remember that your laptop cords fit your new Chromebook.
