How Can I Help You?
Services from your Teacher Librarian
Meet Ms. Sansbury
Curated Digital Resources
Use interactive & informative resources to review or enrich!
Read Aloud with Activity
Literacy, Creativity, and Innovation
Example: I read a fun and descriptive book: I Need My Monster. Then, students complete a creative vocabulary activity: They use Greek roots to create their own monster! See activity sheet below.
Digital Escape Rooms
Flex brain muscles while having fun!
Escape rooms can be applied to all subjects. Ms. Sansbury even has a beginning-of-year digital escape room called the Science Safety Lab Digital Breakout.
Virtual Field Trips
Bring your curriculum to life!
Examples of field trips:
- Journey through the Center of the Earth (explore layers of earth, rock formation, fossils)--to review 3rd grade Science or introductory unit before 5th grade study of Earth's processes
- Historic Sites of Revolutionary War
- The Wild West (including Gold Rush, Oregon Trail, cowboy life)
Let me know where you want to take your students and when, and I will start planning and creating the trip. The trip can be taken during class time or advanced content time (1:15-1:45) or be an independent, self-guided student activity.

Would You Rather? Multiplication
Would you rather?
Put $3 in the bank and have it triple each week for 4 weeks?
Put $4 in the bank and have it quadrouple each week for 3 weeks?
Make a choice and defend your decision with math! Explain what you would rather have to the class and remember to show us your reasoning with your work!
