Ready, Set, Research!

This session was great!  It got me thinking about inquiry with my youngest learners in a whole new way.  I can't wait to incorporate visual literacy (looking at images and questioning based on them) into my units of study.  I am also looking forward to teaching my students the songs shared by the presenters in their presentation.  I have a music background and love the idea of using songs to teach key vocabulary (nonfiction, research).

I learned how to use primary sources to bring nonfiction books to life for the students.

Let's use nonfiction books as a springboard to research. The end of your read aloud shouldn't be the end it should be the first step to more @PatriciaNewman #aasl19

Truth sandwich

Lead with the truth. Here’s what some people say that’s wrong. Restate the truth.

I learned... What is a diversity audit? How do you conduct a diversity audit? Benefits for student readers?

From Tough Topics

Kathleen Glashow made the comment in respect to limiting books on tough topics that we are sending the message that "you are old enough to be raped, but you are not old enough to read about it."

GEMS+ STEAM with a twist

Really enjoyed hearing how these librarians developed a STEM camp for girls that focused on community activism rather than just making trinkets. I've done some stem camps before but these ideas really gave me some structure for taking it up a level for next time.

Tracey Wong truly inspired me to get into Making with my students!

There were so many exciting things happening with Tracy's students, I cannot wait to attempt some of these with mine; especially making books/games for the visually impaired! I am soo inspired and energized to get my Makerspace Game Face on!!!
