I'm stuck at home with my yearly bout of awful sore throat and a froggy or totally lost voice. Been wanting to update the blog for a while so this early afternoon one will be some miscellaneous library related stuff and then hopefully tomorrow or early next week I can write reviews of a couple of books some very kind people have sent me. Oh, and some I got from the library. And my poor Netgalley account ... loaded up the Nook before August's trip to the point where no person could have finished all of them and now they may never let me have free previews again!
Number 1: Pinterest
I am going to go all girly here but I totally <3 Pinterest. Should limit my time on the site but I find so many super cool ideas that I love! And the kids and other teachers end up loving! You can follow me here. It says Request an Invite but don't let that stop you. Only took maybe 30 minutes or so before I got my invite. Or comment here and I can "invite" you. Just to give you an idea of some of the things I've discovered, here are 10 of my favorite school or library related pins.
1) classroom norms
2) good readers printable posters
3) paint chip search terms (There are SO MANY COOL THINGS you can do with paint chips!)
4) super cool retro library posters
5) book cover buntings
6) voice level chart
7) genre flip chart (Just finished a series of multimedia presentations for 5th grade on genres. Will post later!)
8) copyright licenses for different clip art vendors (I do like that people care about this!)
9) organizer (Made it! Can now find more stuff! My desk is not so organized usually. :[)
10) infographic of new ed tech trends
