Spine Poems for Natl. Poetry & Natl. School Library Month

A brand new project for 6th grade library research class – in honor of National Poetry Month and National School Library Month, and inspired by the work of concept artist Nina Katchadourian (her book is called Sorted Books). (PS – They had to put the books back in their proper places when they were done – a pretty fun way to practice locational/shelving skills.)

Screen Time Awareness Starts Monday!

It’s that time again!  While the “official” National Screen Free Week runs from April 30-May 6, we here at Pine Point are celebrating early – April 23-29.  Watch this video from the Media Education Foundation about the amount of time we all spend staring at screens — and then, try TURNING YOURS OFF  for a week — we realize most of us need screens for work and homework – we’re talking about LIMITING RECREATIONAL SCREEN TIME.

Screen Free Week – April 30th – May 6, 2012 from Media Education Foundation on Vimeo.
