Thanks Doug, that's great. It's really good of you to get back to me. I'm just about to have the first meeting with interested teachers where I tell them about the project and I'm hoping they will get on board and work with me to plan training and think of some exciting activities. I'll let you know how it goes...!
Hi Doug, I noticed your comment about Tablets, and that you are way ahead of us, as we are halfway into planning our tablet pilot, which should go ahead in December. Do you have any top tips for us? Thanks for sharing your wisdom :-) Mel
Hey Doug - thanks for the invite! I too love your dog! I have two goldens. The one in my pic is Phoebe and the other (her dad) is Nugget. I had a therapy dog in my classroom for a few years and absolutely loved it - I think he was more therapy for me than the kids though! :) I look forward to sharing ideas!
Thanks for the invitation. I like your dog! I have a Springer Spaniel, but my friend has a Golden who works as a school therapy dog. What a wonderful dog she is. This is her second one. The first one was a male and he was great with the kids. He recently died of a heart condition. He was deeply mourned by over 400 people. Enjoy the rest of summer.
I'm at Kent State U. I am the library director at one of the regionals, but I also teach courses in English and Ed TEch. I was just down your neck of the woods a few weeks ago to visit some of my old chummies. Talk later.
You got me there! As librarian, as well as teacher, I encourage reading by "catching people reading" every fall and spring. The primary kids love to wear those "I got caught reading" signs. Then they get a chance to win prizes at the end of the week.
