    At Holly Shelter, I conduct research stations for students to find informaiton from a variety of formats: print and nonprint. In one these stations, students must use a Nook eReader. As I facilitate this station, I asked students if they think the Nook should be cited as a "print" or "nonprint" source? During this learning opportunity, I teach the students how the MLA guidelines have been revised to incorporate new tformats of resources for research. When citing an eReader, one must use the "book" source on the citation generator to include the citiation in their bibliography.

    At Holly Shelter, the technology facilitator and I assisted 8th grade students with creating their own wiki to demonstrate their computer competency requirements. While creating these wikis through Gaggle accounts, I used this opportunity to talk to the students about appropriate behavior on blogs and wikis, whether they are using them for school projects or personal use.

    Ashley media skills classes are assigned a research pamphlet where they are instructed to create a list of resources about a specific topic. Each source is evaluated on the list based on its ability to help a student research a topic. Students then create a think map of there research process and explain how they would use each type of source to help write a paper. Use the links below to see rubric on how to create a research pamphlet. (Link 1 is the front side of the pamphlet and link 2 is the other.)

    You understand that learning can (and should) be playful.
    We have had loads of success at Sunset Park using puppets for Reader's Theater, we have used the lab to create comic strips of the stories students have been reading instead of traditional book reports, and we have round tables of "tell me what happens" next using Goosebumps and mapping the story on our Smartboard so that we can come back to it each week and share with classroom teachers.

    readings appropriate for their differentiated needs

    When I built Winter Park's new library collection during our rennovation in 2009, I tripled our Easy Nonfiction and Easy Chapter Book collections so that K/1 students can easily find books that that are able to read. This section also gets used alot by 2nd-5th grade teachers that are looking for books for their low readers. I also spend a few weeks at the beginning of the school year teaching all of the 2nd-5th grade students how to search for a book in the catalog. I have been impressed with their increasing proficiency in regards to locating the books (on the computer AND on the shelf) that they are interested in as well as choosing "good fit books" that they can actually read. They also know that they can have books that are currently checked out put on hold for them. In keeping with the classroom teachers' reading instruction (based on The Daily 5 http://www.thedailycafe.com/), I have doubled the checkout limits of all students in grades 1-5. This allows them to have a greater variety of "good fit books" in their classroom book baskets at all times - a book on their level, and easy book to read with their book buddy, a challenging book to read with an adult, books in a variety of genres, etc. Teachers are also beginning to do a better job in monitoring their students' library book selections, and in turn learning more about all of the resources (print and electronic) that are available in the library. - J.Moore

    This has been a tough one for me. I'm a fairly shy person who doesn't really like to rock the boat. I've learned that simply asking for something isn't always the key to getting the things that I KNOW my library needs and my studets/teachers deserve. I've learned from my principal that if I go to her with a plan and justification for my requests then she is more likely to work with me to find a solution/resource/funding. Other staff members aren't always aware of how collection development works and how important to constantly update/weed the library's collection. It is my job as librarian to teach them and help them become better library users. - J.Moore

    At Rachel Freeman there are 3 centers set up for K-2nd and sometime 3rd grade. 4 computers are up and connected to the Tumblebooks site, a second center is set up with LeapPads with a story covering the phonics that is being covered in that grade level. The third center is a listening center with a book on cassett tape. Sometimes the third grade also uses these centers.~B.Anderson
