I can't believe that it is already the middle of October. Time is absolutely flying this school year. I've added a few new resources to our staff site. Be sure to check out the following:
UG2GO has been updated and those changes and information about new programs are available by clicking on Online for Students. Be sure to check out the program descriptions that Michelle Campbell, supervisor of Media Services, created to help staff and students get a quick overview of what is available.
Don't forget to order resources from the Terry James Resource Centre. You can order resources online, through e-mail or by phone.
Celebrations & special events are a great time to integrate technology into the classroom. Check out the new Celebrations link I added to the Resources by Theme page. I've now added resources and activities for Halloween.
Are you a kindergarten or early primary teacher looking for a fun site to engage your learners, that is easy to use? Try this Boowa & Kwala games site from Australia. It has 818 games that focus on basic skill development. It is easy to use & navigate through. It has been added to the primary links on the school library website. It is absolutely worth checking out!
I'm excited to be going to the ECOO Conference later this week & even more excited to add new resources and ideas for you on this site, as I learn them.
As I'm thinking ahead to this conference I'm reminded of a clip I saw a few years ago, of Bobby McFerrin speaking at a Neuroscience Conference. Something to consider trying with your music class. :)
