Book fair preparation is in full swing. We named our book fair Read Ahoy Where Books Are Your Treasure! Love that! We are making a video arrrghcade. Each team of techsperts are making a video game for our family parrrghty night. The winners will get a prize. Teachers are creating pirate/ship flags and are decorating the doors of their classrooms to our theme. My teachers are very competitive so this should be fun. My techsperts are decorating bulletin boards and doors in the LC. The bulletin boards are in the pirate theme and doors are about particular pirates and their history. We are raising money for ALL FOR BOOKS to give books to the needy kids of Excelsior Springs. Our goal is $550. The fair will run from December 1-9. Our family parrrghty night will be Tuesday, December 6 from 4-6:30 pm. Plan to make a stop by to see us during our book fair so you can see all the creative things we are doing.
We are also working on a video project with Mr. Ganzer's Career Center students. We are entering a contest that could win us enough money to get our iPod touches, 360 camera and our 3D pens. We are excited for this opportunity to have a PBL that includes another building.
