BOOK TALK ‚Äď BAD KITTY GETS A PHONE / Bad Kitty is obsessed with playing ‚ÄúFeather Tap‚ÄĚ on his owner‚Äôs phone‚Ķ waaaaayyy too obsessed. When it gets taken away, BK demands his own phone. This starts a fun tale with cleverly-woven-in lessons on:
= Facts, opinions, and interpretation.
= Item cost, value, and how to earn one’s own money.
= Appropriate and safe use of the Internet.
= Lots more about Digital Citizenship.

Told in a boldly-illustrated, full-color, graphic novel/chapter book format… this addition to the series is also very relevant for today’s elementary and less-experienced middle school students.

RESOURCE TALK ‚Äď WEBSITE EVALUATION ‚Äď IT‚ÄôS A PIECE OF C.A.K.E. / In a world filled with disinformation, fake news, and all things AI ‚Äď teaching safe and effective use of the internet is an important part of a school librarian‚Äôs job. 

When you teach littles though... this can be a daunting task. How deep do you get into it? How much is too much? My C.A.K.E. lesson breaks website evaluation down into small, third-grade-sized bites! 

I’ve created a variety of resources to bundle with this theme including a matching bulletin board, and even some pretty cute bookmarks. 

(There's also an additional lesson on website navigation that's sold separately.) See more details at That Library Girl on TPT.

Sigh...this is how you know you've got TOO MANY PROJECTS going on at once! (They kind of look like owls... but that wasn't it... hmmm...) Maybe it was something to do with the spring "Library Helpers" resource?? Surely, it'll come back to me! :)

BOOK TALK ‚Äď THE TOGETHER TREE / Quiet Rumi feels so unwelcome. He‚Äôs even bullied by a few classmates at the new school. He finds refuge under an old tree and plays quietly, building his own creative playground in the dirt below its limbs. After many days of bullying, another classmate bravely steps up to defend Rumi. And that one bystander‚Äôs choice changes everything for Rumi and his classmates, too.

BOOK TALK ‚Äď LADY LIBERTY‚ÄôS HOLIDAY / When realizing that Lady Liberty was feeling a bit grumpy and needed a change of scenery, Pigeon suggested that she take a little getaway trip‚Ķ and boy, did she! Traipsing all over the U.S. (and having a great time doing it) she considered not even returning to her post. But Americans far and wide were so dismayed by her absence, they considered canceling the Fourth of July! Uh oh‚Ķ can Pigeon convince her to return?
