Thing 22

I can see where Ning would have some benefits to educators, especially since everyone involved with the site have the same interests.  I found two links that I actually added to my Favorites page so that I can follow up with them later in my own school library.  Here they are for you to view too:

Cute PowerPoint about keeping the library neat and orderly.  I also like the idea of kindergartners snuggling with a library friend while reading their books.  I have about 30-40 Beanie Babies that someone donated to the library before I came on board.  Right now that just occupy space behind a cabinet door.  Not for long now!

The following is a TeacherTube video that a librarian created, with her daughters' assistance, on how to take care of library books.  It's what we talk about with kinder at the beginning of school; this gives another reinforcement to that lesson.


  1. How cute! I loved the beanie baby slide show. You could even make your own movie with yours. Good luck!

  2. I love this idea!! This is such an important thing to teach, starting in the pre-school years!!
