After reading Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus by Mo Willems, our first graders made a list of the Patton School rules that keep us safe and productive and wrote a book using Mo Willem's model...wondering what if the pigeon came to Patton? To create the book, each student took a photo of one area of the school and drew the pigeon (using Mo Willem's instructions) on their photo in Pixie. Next they added a speech bubble and the Patton rule for that area. What a naughty pigeon!

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.
