I am keeping it short and sweet this week. No cute roundup theme or connection to my current life choices. These are simply the things I bookmarked just for your enjoyment:
This article on using creativity in the math classroom has so many connections to what we strive for in Storytime. I am now going to call my counting flannels ‘Math Chats’.
I simply love this brilliant idea from the minds at Deschutes Public Library (along with the Cascades East Transit system). Singing ‘Wheels on the Bus’ on an ACTUAL BUS?!?! The possibilities for community collaboration are zooming in my brain. ‘Row Row Row Your Boat’ on a boat? ‘Twinkle Twinkle’ at an observatory? ‘Pat-a-Cake’ while eating cake?
‘Best of’ lists and book award countdowns are upon us. There is also a lot of food everywhere you turn this time of year. Travis Jonker mashes it up for School Library Journal in Calde-Snacks.
I can’t get over these fantastic hanging balls.
In a car for a long period this week? Be sure to check out this list of 25 Outstanding Podcasts for Readers.
Finally, I am a bit of a stats girl and I went goo-goo ga-ga over The Statistical Dominance of Dr. Seuss. Green Eggs and Ham word chart for the win.
