DISCLAIMER: Some of the lesson ideas posted below contain links to products I created for my TPT store. To create them, I used only my own computer, equipment, software, clip art, and fonts purchased with my own money and for commercial use. All were created on my own time, not at school or during school hours. These lesson ideas took considerable time to create and perfect so that my fellow librarians might not have to spend so much time planning library lessons. I very much appreciate link sharing, but please do not share any of my actual products–either free or paid–anywhere online or on school or district shared drives.
