Thing # 6

I definitely had fun in all the websites I had to visit. I didn't realize how fast time can fly by when looking at pictures. I really enjoyed looking at I like how there are so many options to choose from. I liked the mosaic and framer option the best. Here is a picture that I made using the framer option.

I've heard teachers using trading cards. I know the kids enjoy making them. I think trading cards would be a great way for students and staff to post book reviews around the library. My kids just finished writing their own book reviews. The kids typed up their book reviews on index cards and we posted them around the library. Using trading cards is a great way to incorporate technology. I know kids would love to have their writing posted around the library for other kids to see. It would be nice to have the staff participate as well so students can get excited about them. It would be important for the librarian to keep up with the book reviews. Here is an example that could be posted in the library. Here is the link to make your own trading card.
