From Rocket Scientist to Reading Ninja

HI-YA! Forever and a day pretty much sums up how long it's been since I've paid any attention to this blog. My last post (from the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year) was about my space theme in the library, which was so fun! This year, I am doing a ninja theme, and it has been awesome! During orientation, I asked students to guess what this word is:
Many of them guessed "read", but it's actually "ninja", and I told them that we were going to be reading ninjas this year.
A good friend helped me KICK up the decor with a few shower curtains and glue guns, transforming the entrance to the library:

There are a lot of great picture books about ninjas, like this one:

The teachers are ninjas, too!


Decorations inside the library include paper lanterns and a fun entrance to our story area, renamed the "Reading Dojo" for the year.



Students enjoyed walking like ninjas on the way hear a story and check out books!


Ninja skills have been encouraged in the library all year long, and the kids continue to love this reading adventure!

  2. Hi Swersty ,

    I happened to chance upon your blog and found it very interesting!

    We have recently launched a science app that uses augmented reality to enhance classroom teaching. The app has 3D models for kindergarten to grade 12. I thought you might want to check it out and may be review it on your blog, if possible.

    It is a paid app(with a few models free) but in case you are interested in trying it out I will be happy to provide you with a free copy.

    The link to the app is: 

    iPhone/iPad
    https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/augmenter-augmented-reality/id997354409?ls=1&mt=8

    android:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.augmented.android

    You can also search for the app on the app store as 'Augmenter'.

    Do let me know if you would be interested. I am really Looking forward to your response.

    happy teaching!
