Mrs. Goumas' class participated in our first every speed "dating" with books today in LMC. Tables were piled with books grouped by genre (mystery, fantasy, realistic, historical, graphic novels and non fiction) and students had one minute to find a book at one table, look it over, and then three minutes to begin reading the first chapter, after which they made a decision if it was a keeper... or not. Then tables were switched and more books were greeted and read. A great reading day for all and many new books were checked out.
My Reading List!
I am the Library Media Center director at Patton School in Arlington Heights where I help students from kindergarten through 5th grade find terrific independent reading for enjoyment and information, and teach students the skills to use information and technology safely and productively and to connect, communicate and share with others. I have four grown children, a large black dog, (flat coat retriever) and a small striped cat. I am an obessive Chicago Cubs fan and I love to run.
