Patton families read together, created together and laughed with the Monarch Award books on a special night made possible by the LMC, our dedicated teachers and staff, and our awesome families! Take a look:
Parents and students rotated through four stations to read or listen to a book, and then do a related activity: create Superhero names (The Princess in Black), take a family portrait (Families, Families Families!), make a bracelet from plastic bags (One Plastic Bag), Draw Wolfie! (Wolfie the Bunny), play a Beekle Beebot challenge (The Adventures of Beekle), create a family/dog tagxedo (Gaston), use Pic Kids iPad app to show how food gets to our lunchbox (How did that Get in My Lunchbox?), fold a lucky red envelope (Goldyluck and the Three Pandas), or discover amazing animal facts in Trapped!, Ivan the Remarkable True Story of the Shopping Mall Gorilla, and Elizabeth Queen of the Seas, and finally watch the Waiting is Not Easy Reader's Theatre with Gerald (Mrs. Copersmet) and Piggie (Mr. Larson)!
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.
