Walking Field Trip to QPL

I spent this whole week outside, walking my classes to the Quechee Public Library to introduce them to the staff, get a tour, get their very own library cards and learn about the summer reading program!  Hearing little exclamations of “Awesome!” and “Cool!” as we toured the library, excited murmurings about titles and programming, and handing students their very first library card was an absolute joy for me!

   

Awesome summer reading programs at the Quechee Library begin June 19th at 4 pm and continue all summer long every Tuesday.  Bring your families! I’ll see you there!

Wild GooseChases!

I was introduced to the online scavenger hunt platform GooseChase last week after presenting at the Dynamic Landscapes conference in Burlington.  This app makes it easy to create fun, dynamic scavenger hunts where the seekers can type, take a photo or video evidence of their solutions.  Both indoor and outdoor, academic and nature-based, the students had a really fun time competing against each other and demonstrating their teamwork! I can think of so many applications of this to the grade levels, and look forward to sharing GooseChase with teachers next year!
