Watch. Connect. Read. and Vote!

Today we Skyped with the truly awesome school librarian, Mr. Schu and a new Skype school librarian friend from Iowa, Kathy.

Mr. Schu's first grade students informed our two classrooms of students about a contest that Mr. Schu is having.  You can read all about the contest and see the amazing things he is doing in his library on his blog, Watch. Connect. Read.

Basically the contest involves voting for the book character who will be Mr. Schu's Road Trip Mascot and join him on his travels this summer. Which book character do you think deserves a vacation?

Here's an Animoto of the candidates that Mr. Schu created:
