One of the biggest pet peeves that I have during the school year is finding a great lesson from a colleague or a resource and then not having the book that goes with it. I have an extensive classroom library (I think I am up to about 800 books) but somehow I don't always have the book that I want or need. Sure, I borrow some from our school library but sometimes it is already checked out or they don't have it. I also spend a ton of money each year buying books to "complete" my collection. I have used some sites in the past like discovery education and storylineonline. Sometimes, I have time to scan books and I have also used my elmo to project books that I do have up onto my smartboard. This year, over the summer, I have decided to look for some of my needed books on internet video. I started by making a you tube playlist for each workshop. I wanted to share my reader's workshop and writer's workshop playlists for the first grading period. Hope you enjoy!
