After reading the Monarch selection The Scraps Book by Lois Ehlert we read more by the author, including Fish Eyes, Oodles of Animals, Chicka Chicka Boom Book and Pie in the Sky. Then first graders tried out the MOMA app called Art Lab to create their own Ehlert inspired animal shape collages. Enjoy their creativity and imagination!
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.
