Testing is over or will soon be for most of you. Congratulations! Now you can get back to what you love - teaching!
I recently was honored to speak at the AL Library Association conference and heard again from my friends who are media specialists and librarians that they would like me to do a blog for them. Abracadabra! This initial posting, entitled The Literacy Ambassador Club, is simply to solicit ideas for what media specialists and librarians need in a blog. Will you please share this with the librarians in your life?
a new resource for children's books, The Book Farm, from Blanchester, OH. They have some good ideas for encouraging summer reading (it will be here before you know it).
secondly, a link to my a master list of all my columns for Educationworld.com. Scan through and find the one that fits what you are planning for your next few weeks' teaching; there are bound to be several. I also include ideas for summer reading in the article entitled Summertime Reading.
After you capture one of those quick and resource-rich articles, come back and post your response, your thoughts, your questions or what you're going to do with that spark of an idea you picked up. I look forward to hearing from you!
