I Survived Stories Selected:
So excited when author, Lauren Tarshis, responded via Twitter to a post about our Bloxels project. Can't wait to share a video of the finalized games with her!
Last year I wrote a Beyond the Books grant to purchase a 5 pack of Bloxels video game builder kits. The proposal was for 3rd graders to read a variety of I Survived books by author Lauren Tarshis and select one to develop a video game based on the characters experiences.
Author Gillian King-Cargile shared her writing process with 4th graders from Sheridan School today. She talked about her writing recipe and the students were able to create their own stories while experiencing STEM activities throughout the day to enhance their story ideas. This was a high energy day filled with great experiences.
In 2009 I was given the chance to move into the best job in the world- Library Media Specialist! I work with students and teachers, coaching both in technology and sharing my passion for literature.
