Thanks Kate and Cheryl for the ideas RE flexible scheduling. My principal is very supportive of the change. Thanks again.

The big benefit of a flexible schedule is that we sit down with the grade level teachers to schedule thier library time so we are collaborating and tying into their curriculum and what they are doing in the classroom.

Karen, The pros of a flexible schedule is that you can work more deeply with a group and see them at natural times of need for instruction.  It's a  more organic way of working. The cons are that some teachers never book time in the library, which then becomes an issue of equity for the students.  I see all lower grades (PreK-2) on a fixed schedule, and have flexible times for the rest.  Good luck!

Hello everyone. Looking for info and ideas for changing our elementary school library from a fixed to a flexible schedule. Would love to hear from other TLs who have made this kind of change. Pros ? Cons ? I have the theory but would appreciate your wisdom. As well, I am working to create an online tool for showing off the library and pulling together online tools for our students, staff, and families.... wondering if the wiki or the blog is better ? Cheers from Canada !

Hello everyone! I am new to this group. I am always so inspired when I see and hear what others are doing. I have been working with our third grade students to create culture glogsters. If you haven't tried glogster yet, you are in for a big treat when you do! The kids loved it and learned a lot! Now I need inspiration for 2nd grade 'continent' project - any ideas?

Joyce's New Tools Wikispace will definitely provide 70 minutes of the latest, greatest ideas!

Here is the link to a Glogster I created. All the tools have educational uses.
GlogsterI highly suggest you look at teachersfirst.comAll the tools relate to education and the summary includes lesson ideas and rates the amount of tech knowledge the teacher might need to use the tool in the classroom.
More resources are collected in the table at the bottom of the page.
