During the 2014 Olympic games in Sochi, Russia, the classes at Patton participated in their own contest! Each adopted a country that was competing in the Olympics and answered a different question about that country each day. We displayed the facts (continent, capital, highest peak, important holiday, national food, language etc.) outside the LMC for students to view and expand their ideas and information about many countries.
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.
