2nd grade classes created an avatar of a friend from another country, using the iPad app My School Avatar. With their avatar students share their research into a kid's life in that foreign country and their comparison to their own life in the United States. Below are Ms. Wegley's country friends. Watch Mrs. McLoone and Mrs. Johnson's avatar videos on the 2nd grade project 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.
