Library Lowdown (week of 1/20/16)

News and Technology from the OCMS library

Important Announcement

Ms. Stellmann will continue working with Mrs. Blair's class for the rest of the year. However, she has switched to period 4A. Therefore, plan with her carefully if you want to bring in a 4A class, as she will be unavailable until at least 2 PM.

Library Usage

This week 249 students visited with 19 classes and 219 students visited on their own.

Tech Tool of the Week

Twitter

Twitter may seem like a no-brainer when it comes to social media but did you know that Twitter can be used to network, ask questions, find resources, join PD communities, and interact with others at national conferences?

Teaching and Planning with You!

Remember that Ms. Stellmann is available not only as a planning resource, but as a co-teacher. She can come to your classroom and teach lessons, assist with small group instruction, help you with finding differentiated resources, provide you with ideas for lessons or projects, or answer questions.

BCPL Resources

Did you know that BCPL (Baltimore County Public Library) offers BCPS wifi access and access to your H drive? This is a great resource for students who do not have computers at home.
