Migrating to new site!

I have made a new site and plan to at some point transfer the domain over to there since I haven't been happy with my site domain through the company that took it over. Eventually the school links will be taken off. Please use the new site! I have gotten my degree for Library Science and will be a librarian and the site in the future will primarily focus on things for the library and how students, teachers, and the community can use the library.

TedEd video lesson for Toontastic

This was an assignment from one of my classes. Since I have wanted to do a video for awhile explaining how to use Toontastic I am so glad several people already had examples and I just chose one and added the details for the lesson.

Since I first bought this program it is now FREE since Google bought it. So sad I paid for it but oh well. They also have different versions for Toontastic Jr such as Pirates and I saw a Shrek one but not sure if that was promotional for the movie.

Empowering Learners Powerpoint

This was an assignment to present the staff in 5 minutes my goals for the library. I used Knovio to add voice to the powerpoint. If you haven't used it before it also has the option to add video. However it does not allow animations for you powerpoint.

Book Trailers of the Week

I have gotten behind in showing book trailers which I love to use in class to get kids interested in new, coming soon, or older books they may not of heard of. I have also tried to get students to make their own trailers at the end of the year but we always run out of time since I only have one ipad. So they are started but not finished.

Here is one I found from Mr. Schu at Watch, Connect, Read. It is from the awesome author of Scaredy Squirrel, and Chester, Melanie Watt

Here is another one for a graphic novel called Hilo: The Boy Who Crashed to Earth by Judd  Winick.

Last trailer for the day Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast.
