The March Madness Tournament of Books is coming to Patton School next week. As many adults get ready to make their annual college basketball "picks" for the NCAA March Madness, here at Patton I have chose 16 great novels for the 3rd - 5th grade brackets and 16 great short chapter and picture books for the K - 2 brackets. The books selected are a combination of checkout popularity, classroom read aloud and award lists. Starting next week, classrooms will vote for the "sweet sixteen" and we will be on our way to a champion.
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.
