Below are ideas that you sent to help the substitute at Ross. You are great!

Erin Schramm

Lauri Wright:

Does she have access to Promethium Planet? So many good and easy things about Dewey, book order, etc there.
Also youtube has great vids on book care, arrangement, Dewey and lots of book talks.
Also Storyline online is such a great place to find ideas for authors and to get kids wanting to read a book.
Also the DMC lit sets make very good and engaging lessons as everyone has a book:
Parts of book, predictions, kick off for author study, moving kids into longer books by group reading first chapter, read/think alouds, buddy reading....

Here are a couple of things I do rally coach style.

Some of these are made for library stations but could easily be adapted to students at computers .. whole group style.
