Links I Shared on Twitter This Week

I've noticed that these days there are a lot of links that I share on Twitter (and sometimes Facebook, Google+, and Pinterest, depending on what the link is). Most of these are things that don't make it into the full children's literacy roundups that Terry Doherty, Carol Rasco and I put together twice a month. So, inspired by some posts like this that I've noticed at Tasha Saecker's blog, Waking Brain Cells, I'm going to experiment with just a quick and easy sharing of links from Twitter:
