I am looking for the description of the 5 roles of the LMS in Standards for 21st-Century Learners. I can't find it. Does anyone know what page it's on or what section?

If you're a fan of Ruth Heller's or Brian Cleary's grammar/parts of speech books, please take notice of a fantastic series of grammar picture books written by Rick Walton. Unlike the the others, these are actually written as stories, which makes them fun for reading, replicating, and using with ELLs. Never knew they existed until recently!

Are there any school libraries in New York State that are operating on a flexible schedule?

I'm looking for ideas for an elementary school book club. I want it to be so great that kids are fighting to get in. My last attempt failed miserably. Any ideas?

If you are looking for a simple/fun thing to do in the classroom for National Library Week, I would like to invite you to Freeze-n-Read 4 Libraries! What began as a simple NLW activity for our school has grown into a library advocacy event we hope everyone who loves libraries will embrace. Our website, explains the simple process. (Promote, Freeze, Get Involved) I know elementary school students will enjoy "freezing" and feel free to make this as creative as you like (Reading Freeze Tag?) The website also brings together in one place links to "cool" and "chilling" facts about libraries along with effective ways to bring about change. Libraries are so crucial to the welfare of our schools and communities! Our young ones need to know! We include a blog to gather information about libraries in crisis, photo gallery for "Freezers" and a poll to document participation. (Web 2.0 stuff) You might want to partner with your local public library to host a community freeze for families on 4/17. My students and I are excited about the potential this has, but we need your help. Please ask your colleagues, friends and family to Vote 4 Libraries on the website and Freeze-n-Read in some way during National Library Week! ~Sincerely, The Freeze-n-Read Staff

I have been doing school visits since 1999 and everytime is a different experience. I just, along with one of my illustrators, Pat Pollock Rhoads, came back from Ca. after a week of school visits. We happily presented 17 workshops to at least 800 students and their teachers. Our participants range anywhere from 3 years old to our big six graders. It was a wonderful experience.
