I accepted a new librarian position in Plano ISD at Jackson Elementary so I will start a new blog and put the link here. I attempted my first bobblehead photo, inspired by Kirsten Hoodie, the Digital Learning Coach at Bright Academy.
The Ogle staff is e-mailing me their current favorite books and I’m posting the covers on the library windows to show our students that we read too! Check out some of these intriguing titles! I’ll put the complete list with authors here at the end of the week!
During open check out last week, third and fourth graders had fun experimenting with our new Ollie robot. The kids practiced driving it up the ramp and doing tricks. You can see how much fun the kids had!
The spine ramp shown is the one here on the @sphero site. It still works even though I assembled it incorrectly. 🙂
After reading Laurie Kellar’s We Are Growing! book about grass, I reviewed punctuation with kindergarten. We discussed inflection and how it changes depending on if you are stating, asking, or exclaiming. After reviewing the Draw and Tell app, the kids drew their own piece of grass on the iPad, they recorded a statement to describe themselves, then asked it as a question, and then read it as an exclamation. The idea for this lesson came from librarian extraordinaire, Kelli Snyder, at Bledsoe Elementary. It’s always a favorite with the kids!
Last week in the Ogle Library, first graders enjoyed the Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld book, The OK Book. The book explores all of the activities in which the boy telling the story is merely ‘ok’ in proficiency. The lesson of the story is that it is fun to try new things, even if you’ll never be great at them and by trying new things, you will eventually discover your talents. The kids used the Doodle Buddy app to create their own pages for our library ‘OK Book‘.
