I haven't posted a blog entry in over 1 month! Good grief! With my new job as a Learning Center Director, I have been extremely busy, but thought it was about time I make a post. Below are some pictures of things I have been doing in my Learning Center. Enjoy! Book reviews to come...
* The "Book Bites" program was held during all lunch periods. Not only did I book talk a variety of books, but students were also able to bring and eat their lunch in the Learning Center.
* The "Say What?!" display features first lines or popular quotes as a way to get students in reading one or more of the featured books. I put this display up at the beginning of the year and it definitely seemed to catch students' interest.
* The "Survivor Challenge" had a total of 24 very excited students participate in a variety of Learning Center challenges including: Name that Book, Dewey Fishing, and the Destiny Quest Hunt.
* I started a T.A.B. in the Learning Center this year, which was something that was never done in my school district before. We had over 70 students apply to be a member, which was great, but I had to narrow it down to 30...making my decision a tough one.
