Get Your Hands on a Book


American Fork City Library has just announced they will be offering curbside pickup.  I have a link to their website right here under resources.  Check it out for the details.  Basically, you put books you want on hold and they will be ready for you to drive up and grab your books.  I hope this helps encourage you to read! Since you can't get into our library, this is a great alternative to get some books!

I'm Bored!


How many times have you said, "I'm bored" since we have been distance learning?  I was in the library cleaning up shelves and putting books away and came across this book.  It made me wonder how many of my students are feeling a little bored.  I thought I might tell you this story for a funny read today.  Take a look at the video below.  After you watch, get up and do some of the cool things kids do to not be boring! Reply to this post and tell me what you did.  I would love to hear! Thanks for watching and checking out the blog!


Have a great weekend!

Online Library Bingo!



Today, I have a fun activity for you! Of course, I want you guys to be reading while you are doing your distance learning, so I have created a Bingo game to make it a bit more fun.  All you have to do is click on the link below.  You will see different ways you can read, and also links to videos to help you navigate some online learning websites like Worldbook and Sora.  Here is the great part! If you get blackout on your bingo card, and complete all the activities, I will deliver a prize to your home!  If you don't feel comfortable with that, you can wait and redeem your prize when we come back to school.  Have fun finding new ways to read and learning new things about all our awesome online resources.  I like the idea of you getting off your screens for a bit to do a craft or make a fortune teller.  Have fun with it! Share this with your classmates that might not get on here, too, and maybe you could have a competition to see who can get blackout first! 
When you complete your bingo card, email me at kchavez@alpinedistrict.org and I will get you your prize! Click the link below to get started.


P.S. Thank you to my library friend Mrs. Allen for giving me this great idea!
