    Great tips-I really like the library card. Bingo with pictures is good too.

    I thought this seminar had some interesting ideas!

    My last bulletin board of the year that I will leave up for summer-schoolers says, "Summer Reading is WAY COOL!" It has Pete the Cat on a yellow pool float reading a book. The pretend book has real book pages and is 3-D, standing off of the board. Pete is wearing holographic sunglasses and the word COOL is in that same shiny poster board. There is a big sleepy sun looking down from a high corner and a hot pink flamingo float beneath it with "Have an awesome Summer!" on it. I hope students will take the hint and keep reading books during the 11 week break.

    I like the common sense message of this training. Little things can make a difference. Sometimes as teachers we can overthink and over complicate things:) Nice, practical tips to help prevent learning loss!
