Each week we’ve voted with a Google Form that was set to allow students to see the results after their vote. There are quite a few steaming students upset with me since this week’s round has closed results! I want it to be a surprise when we announce our winner Friday, March 27th.

We are voting each Thursday, so today was decision day in the first round of our Library March Madness Tournament. Our Sweet Sixteen are now officially down to our Elite Eight. Image Attributions: Book Covers are compliments of GoodReads. All other images are my own.
Of course anyone who works in a library knows it’s never “done.” But my focus has definitely shifted away from this section. I am finished focusing on it for this school year anyway.

Watching trends in school library again, I see a new one taking root: the Learning Commons. I love this video made using Powtoon, one of our AASL Best Websites for Teaching and Learning 2014.

Dorman’s Planned April Poetry Month Activities: Spine Poetry – Students may use library books to create spine poems. We will take a picture and display them in the library. Chalk Poems – Students […]
Yesterday I shared our April 2014 Poetry Month plans, so today I want to share how we will celebrate National School Library Month. Half of our month is or will be gone due to our statewide standardized testing for high schools going on this month (actually this entire week.) Next week is stolen earned for […]
