To support the Iowa Goldfinch unit, I created a Symbaloo webmix for this year's 2013-2014 nominees. My amazing teacher-librarian friends, from Dallas Center-Grimes, Sandi Ellis and Melissa White, and I are teaming up to find resources for this Symbaloo webmix. Sandi and I have collaborated earlier this year to provide Google Hangout opportunities with our 2nd grade students.
(You can read about our amazing experiences by clicking on the following blog links written by Sandi: http://dcgelementarylibrary.blogspot.com/2013/11/otis-and-puppy-part-i.html , http://dcgelementarylibrary.blogspot.com/2013/11/otis-part-ii.html, and http://dcgelementarylibrary.blogspot.com/2013/11/our-technology-follow-up-with-otis-puppy.html )
Our 2013-2014 Iowa Goldfinch Award Symbaloo Webmix includes book trailers, authors' official websites, Teaching Books.Net, and anything else to support and enhance each book.
Students will use this Iowa Goldfinch Symbaloo Webmix, starting tomorrow, to access book trailers and video clips. More to come about how that goes tomorrow...
In the meantime, check out http://www.symbaloo.com/mix/2013-14iowagoldfinch ! It is a work in progress, but it surely will enhance all of the amazing books on this year's Iowa Goldfinch Award nominee list!
P.S. I post this webmix on my blog today, so it can help me become one step closer to becoming "Symbaloo Certified." ;)
