Always looking forward to your suggestions, I hear your voice as I read them. And I may be able to scrounge a few dollars.
on Wed, May 18, 2016 at 12:45pm
Thanks for your heartfelt response. He was quite fun to talk to. His books are changing boys (and other readers) all over the world. The certificate is available in the yellow Certification folder on the bottom of the playback screen. I am, however, emailing you one for your convenience.
on Wed, May 18, 2016 at 12:43pm
Try again. It should work fine now.
on Wed, May 18, 2016 at 12:42pm
Check again. It was actually only the graphic that was private. It works fine now and I've made a few improvements.
on Sat, May 14, 2016 at 19:30pm
I really enjoyed the webcast last week. Mr. Alexander was outstanding. I read two of his books:
Booked and The Crossover. (these were great reads The amazing thing is that I could identify with these books as a sport's mom. I am the mother of two boys that played sports (pop warner football, middle school-basketball/ football and high school-basketball and track. My husband was Coached basketball and baseball. I wish these books were available back then for the boys to read.. I am happy to spread good information about his writing style and good works. I plan to read more of his books. Thank you for allowing me to be apart of webcast. However, I do need information on how to obtain the certificate for listening.

I'll make a note to re-lease it in March. :) You can also check our Poetry (Roses are Red) Pinterest board if you get ready to plan before I post it.
on Mon, May 09, 2016 at 16:00pm
I'm so glad. I hope you'll find it useful. Let me know how it goes or if you need some personal library coaching.

As a new librarian, I appreciate information such as this, thanks!!
on Fri, May 06, 2016 at 13:18pm
Nice post. I need to see these resources and ideas next year in March or early April when I send out information to my teachers about Poetry Month. Yes I know read and use poetry all year.... In fact I have a great book Poetry Friday Anthology by Sylvia Vardell and Janet Wong that is fabulous for sharing poetry every week. But please send this again next year! Thanks for gathering all this information.

Once I found a slice of raw bacon in a book. It had been there a little while because the grease had migrated to both ends of the textblock. i left the bacon inside the book and threw the book out in the dumpster.

We are so glad you enjoyed the webinar. We are really excited about the new PG categories. I'm emailing you a copy of the certificate for your convenience. Deb
on Mon, Mar 21, 2016 at 18:47pm
I did enjoy the webinar and got a couple of new titles I have already placed on orders. Thank you. You have always been very easy to work with and I love the new categories that guarantee books without questionable content. Thanks for listening to our concerns. Where do I go again to get the certificate of completion for the webinar again? Thanks,
on Wed, Mar 16, 2016 at 15:15pm
Absolutely! We know you're busy teaching, so sign up anyway. When/If you miss the viewing, you'll get an email later that says "sorry we missed you." When the archive is available, you'll get an email with a link. We also post our webcasts to our YouTube channel in our Professional Development playlist.

Sorry to hear that Kristen. Maybe if someone talked to them about the benefits, they would open it up. It happens.

Yay Pat! That's exactly right. The younger we start them, the better they learn. Real research takes searching!

I missed this webinar and am wondering if it is available for viewing?
on Thu, Oct 01, 2015 at 17:50pm
Thanks for addressing this issue. I have found, in my limited 10 years experience as a Library Media Specialist, that students just want to go to the computer to find the answer. This is why I begin with the youngest students (first grade) and gather information from print resources before we even go to the computer. When there, we use vetted sites such as Pebble Go, National Geographic or our on-line encyclopedia before anyone can go into the Internet. I believe that children should learn that print resources are the beginning of research and on line resources are the extension and verification of print.

Hi Dan, The archive is now available. You'll find it at http://w.on24.com/r.htm?e=984734&s=1&k=48101A39969ECC321DF4F2F3A5DFC901

Thank you so much for this invaluable information.

Thank you so much for archiving your presentation! Just moving into a brand new building my computer set up had no speakers until after the webinar. Having just listened to your book talk I am inspired to find a way to obtain some of these amazing titles! Inspired as always by your vision and enthusiasm!
on Tue, Aug 25, 2015 at 20:40pm
How do I print a certificate? I "clicked" on the Certification icon and all that printed was a screen shot of the webcast.

Hi Deborah, I'm so delighted you liked my handbook! You have a lot to learn, but I think you will eventually be a great farm dog and earn lots of biscuits.

I don't believe in coincidence, but when I happened on this article I was going to ask you this question: I am planning to return to being a school media specialist. I did it for 6 years and want to get back into it after being a ref. and catalog librarian. I was going to ask what do I do to get back in. Your following response had already answered the question. I believe it was divine intervention. Thanks.
Maybe this year you’re in a new library. You don’t know the staff, the collection, or your patrons. You can’t do what’s “always been done” because you don’t even know what that is. My advice to you is to watch, learn, and absorb. Don’t try to change the world before you know what it is. Make friends with your new colleagues. Don’t expect to understand everything right away. Keep your chin up and your shoulders back. When it gets hard, get a pedicure, and let it go.

Many things you wrote about are exactly how I am managing my audiobooks. I have found that shelving them separately and with the print version allows for great success with my students. My ELD and struggling readers really like them and that's who I was targeting when I bought them. Thanks for the validation.

on Wed, Sep 17, 2014 at 23:41pm
I have metal vases filled with paint sticks (for stirring paint) on the tops of lower shelves. Kids get one, touch "the back of the book, the back of the book, the back of the book." If they don't want the book they return it so the stick is touching the back of the book. If they remove the stick and change their mind, they put the book flat on top of a shelf. Works great for little kids and big kids in a rush.
on Tue, Sep 16, 2014 at 13:06pm
Click on the 3-6 tab now, and you should see several titles that are interest level 3-6. It does look like I need to read and research some 5-8 titles soon!

are their no resources for 3-6? I don't see any dropdown like there are for K-2. maybe the link is bad?
p.s. how do I link directly to your livebinder?
on Tue, May 13, 2014 at 15:08pm
Links to JLG BTG are now included for these titles on their book detail pages. Look for it!

Thank you so much for adding in your favorite quotes. I too have read certain books that
are full of what I call "golden lines". I just have to write them down & share. In fact, I keep
a binder full of my favorites. I'm going to definitely have to read this book. Thanks for the recommend!

I agree with you. What makes this funny for me is that our school has been implementing the Fish Philosophy for 4 years as part of our discipline incentive program. When I saw this picture, I had to laugh. My library is not quiet - it is an active place of learning.
