Maximoff Twins Post It Note Art

For the first Post-It Note Art of the 2015-2016 school year, Connolly decided she wanted to create the Maximoff Twins in their original costumes.

What?  You have no idea who the Maximoff Twins are?

 Pietro and Wanda?

What about this:  Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch

Ring any bells now?

Please say yes. 

Surely you DID see The Avengers: Age of Ultron?!

(If not, please fix this asap!)

These 2!

The first pictures I was able to take of Connolly's creation in process was after our half day of PD.  She worked for about 3 hours.

  Quicksilver was complete and looked terrific!

Scarlett Witch couldn't be completed because she ran out of red & black post-its.

On Monday evening when we returned with MORE post-it notes (after special ordering the black ones on Amazon & scouring stores for the awesome red ones), we discovered Quicksilver was in pieces...well, the blue sticky notes were dropping off of the windows.  Why?  NOT POST-IT NOTE BRAND (Remember the awful time we had with the TARDIS...not to mention it was created while Connolly was home sick...lesson should have been learned that STICKY NOTES are for writing notes; POST-IT BRAND NOTES are for ARTWORK!)

So, we grabbed another lighter color of blue (that came in the package with the new red) and redid Quicksilver...but came up just a few short!  (DRAT!)  A quick trip down to a colleague's room to see what post-it notes HE had gave us the idea to change a few with a different shade of blue for contrast.

Quicksilver now looks like this:

Scarlet Witch is all finished as well thanks to more red & black post-it notes...

Review: Attachments

Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I'm not sure why I waited to read this book. I had heard others mention they loved ALL of Rainbow Rowell's books, even her "adult" one, Attachments. (Side note: Why does mentioning it's an adult book sound so dirty?! It's not at all. It's just not a YA book. It's actually cleaner than many of the YA books I've read...) Anyway, I requested this title from my library and was pleased to pick it up a few days ago. I immediately began reading it. It was a breath of fresh air for me. Perhaps because the characters WERE adults, and not angst-ridden teens or supernatural beings, or any of the other stereotypes it seems like I've been reading too much of lately...

Rainbow Rowell has a way of writing characters that you wish you knew in real life. They're interesting, sincere, and realistic. I especially enjoyed the format of this book with the many emails between Jennifer and Beth. Lin…

1-2-3 Wonder

Collaborating is one of the aspects of teaching that I most enjoy.  As a school librarian, I have the unique opportunity to collaborate, teach, and work with many different teachers and students in my school building, grades K-12.  This school year, one of my professional goals is to collaborate outside of my school and even outside of Indiana. 

When David Etkin mentioned on Twitter that he had an idea for a Wonder extension lesson, I immediately said "I'm in!"  We talked it out a bit and decided to recruit a few more people to the collaborating party from the #WONDERschools initiative.  Davidforced  persuaded Reilly into participating in this project with her 5th grade students.  

We worked together in Google Docs on the lesson idea, questions, and discussed how to best implement this in our classrooms.   Then we decided how to combine and showcase what was done in each of our classes. The cool part of this collaboration was that we used several methods of communication: …

Totoro #PostItNoteArt

Our post-it note art for the fourth 9 weeks this school year is from the movie My Neighbor Totoro.  It seemed to be a bigger undertaking than usual.  I think the main reason for this was because we had to alter the patterns quite a bit to fit our windows.  This always presents a challenge to keep the scale the same and make sure the finished art is still recognizable.  Connolly does a great job with this and usually eyeballs the changes.  I, on the other hand, prefer to be able to follow the pattern row by row.

Time wise, the three forest spirits were created in about six total hours.

Daughter finished the #Totoro #PostitNoteArt on our library windows. Like every one we've created, it's now my favorite. 💙 (Top: view from hallway; bottom: view inside library) #myneighbortotoro #myfriendtotoro #TotoroSocietyART #TotoroisHere #RMHSLibrary @postit
