Here are highlights from the links that I shared on Twitter this week @JensBookPage. First up, while I'm not sharing the related links, the Kidlitosphere Conference is taking place today in Hershey, PA. I was unable to attend (travel is pretty difficult for me these days), but I hope that everyone there is having a fabulous time!! Follow the #KidLitCon hashtag on Twitter for updates. I'll be retweeting as my schedule permits.
In other news, I have posts about #AcceleratedReader, #BookLists, #DiverseBooks, #GrowingBookworms, #Halloween, #math, #PictureBookMonth, #PictureBooks, flexible classrooms, grades, reading for pleasure, schools, teaching, the #Cybils Awards, and gender.
