Hello, Kristen- I believe that you popped up in connection news as having a similar library. I love those science books too. Our school bought them for our resource room and I'm always trying to get other teachers to use them. I'm going to have to check BN for your podcasting book - how very cool. I love to pod and vod with my kids - it creates SUCH excitement! The other book I just noticed on your list is White Giraffe. I just got back from our state reading conference and almost bought it. I wish I would have now. I'm working on my Masters in history and feel like I'm really slacking on my kid lit this year - I love to be up on the newest books to help the kids find books they'll love. I keep telling them about library thing but as of yet none of them have signed up - my own children have and love it!
activelearning - Just from looking at your library I want to replicate you and bring you to my elementary school as our media specialist. We have one of those dragon ladies who likes the media best with no kids in it - it has the atmosphere of a cemetary and my students are terrified to go browse for books. sigh.......
Have been to Louisville, stayed at the Brown hotel, ate their yummy chocolate chip cookies, plus there's always Derby pie.

Shouldn't talk about food -- it's over an hour until lunch and I ate breakfast at 5:30....
my parents are from North Carolina. Never been to Memphis myself.
catfish I would eat, but okra -- icky. Not much I won't eat, except for innards (brains, liver, kidneys, tripe, heart) and okra.

Where did you work in the South? I make mean buttermilk biscuits.
Do you like the chicken nuggets at your school?
Got it. I think we have to make sure kids allow comments for teachers to respond to posts.

Hi Kristin,
I see you've populated your library. I haven't looked at anyone else yet. I think this comes as a message to you on your page, right? Just checking it out.
I loved Animal Vegetable Miracle. Gotta go plant the rest of my garden today. It's very, very small.
