After reading Mo Willem's Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, and learning the Patton School rules for gym, art, music, lunch, LMC, and the playground, first grade classes wrote a new pigeon book, Don't Let the Pigeon Break the School Rules! First the class made a list of the school rules. Then each student took a photograph of one area of the school using an iPad. We uploaded their photos to a folder on the computer and each student found their photo and put it into a slide in Pixie. They added the appropriate rule for their photo and drew the pigeon. Below is Mrs. Cowen/Hasemeyer's class slideshow and the other classes slideshows are on the Student Projects page.
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.
