Teacher Resource Lists and Class/Club Virtual Libraries
I can also create a virtual library bookshelf based on our ebook collection that is customized for your club/organization or class. The bookshelf will include titles and book trailers that support your organization's goals or your class' curriculum. To see an example, check out the library I created for GSTA. Please keep in mind that I am limited to our e-collection books at this point, but I will do my best to find a variety of books that best fit your needs.
If you would like a resource list and/or a virtual library, please email me: email@example.com.

December Library Trivia Winner and January Trivia Info
I am very grateful for the support you all have given in promoting our library trivia initiative! This is a great way to get physical copies of books in kids' hands while we can't have the school library open--and bonus, the winner gets to pick the book!!! Congrats to Justin McGaughey, our December trivia winner! Justin is a student in Mr. Probst's English class and he successfully answered the question: "Visit the December Virtual Library on the LibGuide and click on Mrs. Freeman's Bitmoji. What is the name of the slide this links to?" The correct answer is "The December Books Spotlight." Justin's book was mailed to him before the break. January trivia has been posted on the LibGuide Welcome Page at the top of the third column and it can also be accessed in the January Virtual Library by clicking on my Bitmoji. Students can win more than once, so former and new contestants are welcome!
Any feedback you have about the re-opening plan is appreciated--please email me!
Education World offers a wide variety of lesson plans and resources for teaching students about Inauguration Day. The lesson plans range from K-12, so if you have little ones at home, there's something for them on here as well! Check it out here.
Trauma-Informed Teaching Practices
Ms. Dow and our counseling team have done a fantastic job of training our staff about trauma-informed care. If you would like more info, particularly about ways to support students who have experienced trauma (even virtually) as well as teacher wellness support, please visit the linked resource list from Unconditionallearning.org.
