Sing and Learn Library Skills Out Loud With Our Four New Books and Songs!

It was so much fun celebrating the new library series I wrote with Cantata Learning at the TLA Conference in San Antonio this last week.  
 I signed these adorable Learn Out Loud posters in the Capstone booth and gave out....
bookmarks to go with the series.

During our poster signing, we played the books and sang along with Emily Arrow.  Emily arranged and produced the music for each of the four books in the library series.

It was so much fun!
You can now listen and sing along too!

On the Cantata Learning site, go to the Library Skills Set page here.  You will find all four titles which include....
Find a Book, 

On each page, you can click the play button to stream the song or download it too.  

You can preorder from your favorite vendor now or buy directly from Capstone on August 1, 2017. 

This is a wonderful way to learn library skills out loud with your students.  I know you will be singing along with Emily and our beautiful new books in the library this year too.

Watch The Second Future Ready Librarians Webinar....Leading Beyond The Library

On April 11, the Alliance for Excellent Education and Follett hosted the second Future Ready Librarians webinar....Leading Beyond The Library.  

Mark Ray and myself welcomed two special guests, Bill Bass and Kim Lindskog, from Parkway School District in Missouri to discuss their district and how the two of them have empowered and led their teacher librarians and others to be Future Ready.

It was an amazing hour and one you won't to miss.

You can watch the webinar and get all of the slides to the presentation here.
