Internet Safety lessons have started!
All grades have started learning about the subject of digital citizenship and internet safety. It has been very impressive how much background knowledge students have already demonstrated as we discuss these topics! It’s apparent many students are already putting a good number of these skills into practice at home. The goal is for more teaching and review of these topics each year, so that Shabonee students will be fully ready and equipped to handle this rapidly growing and changing digital world!
***Favorite New Book in the Shabonee Library***
The First Rule of Punk by Celia C. Perez
A fun story about Malu, who creates cool zines (copied throughout the book - love it!), and has an obsession with punk music. After moving to the city of Chicago, Malu must find new friends, try to please her traditional Mexican mother who wants her to be more “senorita-like,” and not to be bothered too much by a mean girl at her new school. This book is full of cool art references and Mexican cultural descriptions. I loved this book!
Race to the Bottom of the Sea by Lindsay Eagar
If you like exciting stories about pirate adventures, this is the story for you! Fidelia is a young inventor and after her parents are killed in a submarine accident, she is kidnapped by pirates to help find Captain Merick’s lost treasure. This story has some parts that are a little scary, but it was suspenseful and the characters were very interesting. The settings are wonderfully described by Eagar, so who makes the reader imagine what it is like to be at sea. Read it!
