January in the Media Center
This month I have been blown away by the creativity and technology skills OSE students demonstrated.  Grade 5 students are working on book talks using iMovie on iPads. Grade 4 students are working on a Biography project on computers. Grade 3 students are making book talks using iMovie on the laptops and desktop computers. First Grade and Second Grade students have been learning how to create blog posts using KidBlog.
 
Save the Dates: Selections BookFair February 7th-13th.  
 
We will be open until 7:30 on 2/13 during conference night.  We will also be open from 7:30-8:30 am on Thursday, during the family breakfast.
  
December In the Media Center
We have been exploring wonderful books and working on exciting projects in the Media Center. Kindergartners learned about a research tool called PebbleGo on the computers. First grader used Keynote to create a Past, Present, and Future project.  Second graders participated in the Global Read aloud and video chatted with students from Eli Pinney elementary.  Third graders have been busy writing book reviews using Keynote.  Fourth graders used the iPads, Pen and Paper to create a Common Craft type video about the Paleo Indian for Social Studies. Fifth graders research regions and used various types of media to share what they learned about Geography for Social Studies.
Best Wishes for the New Year!!! 
September in the Media Center
Welcome back! We are going to have an amazing year in the OSE Media Center. For the first few weeks of school we will focus on finding books in the library and learning about some of the cool features in our library catalog.  We will have conversations about how reading can be more enjoyable when it is social. Throughout the year tudents will be encouraged to post book talks, reviews, podcasts, trailers on the Media Center wiki.

Usborne Book fair
The spring bookfair is coming up. Mark your calendars for May 20-24. Students may bring money and shop during library time or may bring in an order form. Usborne is known for informational book (nonfiction). Thank you for supporting the OSE library!!!
 
Research
Fourth and Fifth graders have been talking a lot about research in the library and the importance of being critical thinkers when evaluating information that we come across online and in print. We also talked about what makes a good research question. We looked at some search strategies that help researchers "narrow down" a topic.  Third graders have been busy researching their animal projects using information found in multiple sources.  They are learning the importance of citing their sources.  Second graders have been researching inventors and finding how the inventions changed our world. First graders are working on a choice research topic. They are finding the main idea and other facts.  
Kate Messner Chat
Although the "in person" visit with Kate Messner was cancelled due to a snow day, students were able to meet via an online video chat. The technology tool that we used was bluejeans.  Kate Messner  showed the students her backyard Lake Champlain where  many of her ideas originate. It was a super day! Thank you to the Technology Department for helping us make this happen and to PTO for paying for the visit.
 
Kate Messner
Even though many students were excited to have a snow day, they were also disappointed that we were not able to have an author visit.  As you can see from the pictures Kate Messner made it to an empty building at Olde Sawmill. We quickly came up with an alternative plan to Skpe with Mrs. Messner  
Book Fair - Save the date.
This year book fair will be held from 12/11-12/20.  We will be open for parent shopping during school day. On the evening December 13th which is the night of the 3rd grade musical we will have evening hours. Hope to see you there!  
Fall 2012 The Vision

This is my second year at Olde Sawmill in the Media Center. This summer I spent some time fine tuning my vision for the Media Center by reading, attending workshops, and collaborating with peers. My goal for this year is to help students develop 21st century skills (communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking) as they focus on literacy skills and practice being good digital citizens.
 
Summer 2012 The Big Move

You might notice some changes when you walk into the media center this year. It has been bustling with activity this summer. In Spring 2012 last year’s fourth graders (now fifth graders) identified some “opportunities” with the design and layout of the Media Center and came up with ideas to make the space work better for us. The goals were to make the space more flexible and to improve access to resources. A team of dedicated OSE staff members worked very hard this summer to start to make the vision a reality. My hope is that the new design will support both collaborative and individual project work and improve student access to resources.
