Welcome New 6th graders and welcome back to the new 7th. I haven't made separate blogs for you but that's coming in the near future.
FOR 6th - we will examine the blog and choose new blogger identities for you.
For 7th - Check this out: pinterest.com/cumberlandpl/rhode-island-teen-book-award-nominees-2013/
Some of you may know pinterest, an online bulletin board where you can pin images, and videos. Tech coordinator Sarah Ludwig uses her account to give tutorials on keyboard shortcuts, how to use Glogster (in case you've forgotten) and book trailers. Yours truly used the Lawn Library Lounge but please tell me if you like this better:
and how you think you and I can use Pinterest. I'd use it if you would visit it, and more importantly, can you see a use for it educationally? Please think about how you can use this tool and put it on your blog so I can read it.
7th Graders: I am showing you the complete list of RITBA books but some of them are for upper high school and I don't recommend your ordering them. Wait...you will be there soon enough. Don't rush. Plenty of great reads waiting for you out there.
