I am interested in hearing about successful integration of the Read/Write web (a.k.a. Web 2.0) in the elementary library curriculum. I have also been asked about the implementation of wikis for classroom use. All replies/comments are welcome.

hello, i am a grade school librarian in the Philippines and I got a glimpse of this site when I read an article about collaboration and saw the video about a librarian and a teacher who dated. It's so funny and so interesting... I hope to get more ideas in this group and benchmark, resource sharings, etc. Librarians rule the world!

Summer Reading @ Brookline.docThis summer, my school requested that I come in two days a week on Thursdays and Fridays for three weeks and open the school library during summer school to read stories and check out books. I see this as great progress for my school. Because for so long the my school seemingly could not separate the library being opened and the librarian being available during summer school unless the librarian was assigned to teach a class in the same manner as a teacher.

I am interested in knowing what your summer expectations and experiences have been like at your school if your library was open at any point during the summer.

Please share activities that were done--like stories, songs, art projects, etc.

I'm a freelance writer/educator with an education blog at: I'm working on my first series of children's picture books and would like your feedback. I combine rhyme, illustrations and movement to teach math, phonics, days of the week, etc. I have some examples on my blog. Do you think there's a market for these books? I'd appreciate any comments. Thanks.

Hello All! New to your network - so glad that I found it - love to have great brains to bounce ideas around! I am a K-2 media specialist (about to become K-1) of a fairly large, progressive school in Trussville, AL. I also serve as a Technology Team Leader for my school (among several other things, but that is our story, no? :) ) Looking forward to some great discussions.

Hello, I'm new to the group, and glad that I found it! I'm a grad student at Northern Illinois University, working on my Master's in Educational Technology. I've been working as an elementary librarian (pre-K-5) since the Fall of 2007--a welcome and exciting change of career paths after teaching high school! I've participated in listservs, and always welcome the sharing of ideas. Tonight my thoughts have been on next week's observation of Lincoln's 200th birthday as I previewed my new Lincoln books. Is anyone planning any fun library lessons or activities?

I also am new to the group. I am an elementary Information Specialist at Jamerson Elementary in St. Peterburg, Florida. I am just beginning to explore and expand my PLN and having a great time doing it. there are such amazing resources out in cyberlibraryland. Hope you will all join me in my personal, professional growth.
