The last 1/2 hour of Friday, December 20, Patton School students stopped what they were doing and were released to find a place, anywhere in the school, to read. For five minutes the school was buzzing with students carrying books through the hallways to locate a classroom or the art, music, gym, LMC, or office for the perfect spot to read. When the five minutes was up, everyone settled in and the entire school was quiet with silent reading. What a great way to start the winter break vacation!
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.
