Library Patch: Reading Passports: Where Can Reading Take You? We all know that students need to read EVERY. DAY. But, I am sure that all of you have seen THOSE kids. You know the ones. The ones that drive you crazy. It is this very reason why I build in an independent reading program around my library theme each year. This year, I created Reading Passports that my students are using to track the number of books that they have read. I printed each cover on a blue sheet of card stock. My students earn a sticker for each book that they read. If you love these as much as I do, you are welcome to a FREE download that you can use with your own students. I always tell kids that if they don't like reading, they haven't met the right book yet!

Water Cycle Animation: Digital Project Using PowerPoint - The Techie Teacher® For the past two Thursdays I have been working on a really fun water cycle animation project with a 5th grade class. We used Pixie and PowerPoint to create an animation of The Water Cycle. The classroom teacher allowed students to choose if they wanted to work in partners or alone. First, each group designed a representation of the Water Cycle using Pixie. Next, the students created a water droplet by using the shapes tool and/or the webcam to take a selfie and then cropped to shape. Students exported their Powerpoint as an mp4 movie file and sent it to me via the Work Collector. I just love ALL of their projects and it was hard to pick just 3 to showcase here: Rachel and Reagan's Water Cycle from Julie on Vimeo. Clara's Water Cycle from Julie on Vimeo.

Eliterate Librarian Inter-tech Education – Just another site Endless Possibilities | Reflections & Resources– Jennifer Casa-Todd Printable coloring pages for adults, books, mandalas The pleasure of coloring is now available also for adults too. This form of entertainment can have a great influence on the state of your mind. Nowadays, most people live in a huge stress, under constant pressure (exerted by the boss, society, family expectations etc.) and in an endless rush. It’s definitely nothing good for your general health and mental condition. So slow down a bit and try coloring pages for adults. Relaxing coloring pages show a great way to calm down, gather your thoughts together and stimulate imagination and creativity.
