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.
2 Sheridan Presentations for the 2018 Conference
This year I took 9 of my kiddos from the Students Involved in Technology Club to the SIT conference. Four 4th and 5th graders presented and the other five were first time attenders so they came only as participants. It was an exciting day for everyone and I was so proud of our students' presentations and overall conference behavior.
After reflecting on our day the biggest take away was the destruction laboratory. So after we finish our I Survived video game design project we will add deconstruction to the end of the year plan for our SIT Club. I might have to call in the tech department for this one! Watch for more information on this in May!

excited to share how they 3D printed and put together their first robots! They did a lot of research on the different types of add-ons you could use to improve your robots chances to defeat the opponent. Go to their website to see their process.
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.
