If you happened to watch my Instastories yesterday, I was on a social media hunt looking for the person who came up with this adorable idea to use the @Quivervision Masks app to create recorded read alouds. Well, the mystery has been solved! It was @sean4d40💥. He tweeted about using Quiver Vision Masks to create “mystery reader” videos posted to @flipgrid for students to view & guess who the mystery reader might be🤯. Search the hashtag #themaskedreader on Twitter for more info! 🎭 If you aren’t familiar with Quiver Vision Masks and are interested in learning more, be sure to visit my blog tomorrow!My next post, 𝑭𝑼𝑵 𝑳𝒊𝒕𝒆𝒓𝒂𝒄𝒚 𝑨𝒄𝒕𝒊𝒗𝒊𝒕𝒊𝒆𝒔 𝒕𝒐 𝑯𝒆𝒍𝒑 𝑷𝒓𝒆𝒗𝒆𝒏𝒕 𝑺𝒖𝒎𝒎𝒆𝒓 𝑺𝒍𝒊𝒅𝒆, will be published at 6am EST and THIS is one of the ideas mentioned. Have kids create their own masked AR read alouds 😎. 🎭 P.S. I posted this video on my Facebook page yesterday and someone said that this is what nightmares are made of 🤣. #augmentedreality#edtech#ipaded#apps#readaloud#teachwithtech#librariansofinstagram
My heart is full 💛 I adored The Kiss Quotient, and The Bride Test did NOT disappoint. These characters are so beautifully nuanced, and my heart cheered for them. I cried openly as I read the ending. Helen, thank you for sharing this story that hits so hard on the meaning of love, the difficulties of being an immigrant, and so much more. If you’re in the need of a bit of cheer, grab this right away! —————————— #thebookishwanderer#bookstagram#librariansofinstagram#helenhoang#thebridetest
I’m so antsy lately, and I think my body is trying to prepare for a big change, even when there is none right now! I realized the other day, this is the first time since 2016 I won’t be spending my June\July in career transition, AND in moving mode. Three career/job changes, and three moves in three years was... a lot, Staying put, and growing where I am currently planted 🌳 A throwback photo of our stuff arriving in Bermuda.
Grid post alert (1/3) - Palm leaf was one of the earliest forms of writing, used primarily in South Asia, similar to papyrus in ancient Egypt. The oldest surviving palm leaf manuscripts are from the Middle Ages, covering topics like science, astrology, medicine, literature, philosophy, and music. Different parts of South Asia have their unique variations of recording and finishing these manuscripts. A few remaining manuscripts that were passed down from my great-grandparents collection have Tamil writings on them. #evolutionofwriting#palmleafmanuscript#mytalegaritale#ancientcivilization#southasian#southasia
Grid post alert (2/3) -The inspiration for Talegari Tales came from this heritage, where we would like to pass down stories, traditions, cultural elements, diversity of South Asia to the younger generation. . Languages represented in this post are #english#tamil#kannada#hindi#sanskrit
Grid post alert (3/3) - To prepare a palm leaf manuscript , tender leaves were dried and boiled with spices like turmeric (which give them a yellow tinge), resulting in a smooth surface. Manuscripts were written from left to right using a stylus, and two holes were punched to bind loose leaves together with string. Interesting fact ***************** Although we have never experienced this first hand, we are aware that some astrologers have, for many centuries and even to this day, recorded on palm leaf manuscripts the past, present, and guidance on the future, names of family etc. These are unique to one’s thumbprint. . #palmleafmanuscript#historical#manuscripts#historyfacts
Another school day done! Since I am the baking librarian, I wanted to share some books that I’m currently reading or have read. Swipe left to see what I’m reading now. In the spirit of the meme, I am going to read @tomhanks book titled Uncommon Type. It’s a collection of short stories which is perfect for me because it allows me to start and stop without missing and forgetting components of the story. I’ll share my thoughts about the book as I’m going through it. 📚 💕 #uncommontype#readingbooksisfun#librariansofinstagram#librariansread#whatlibrariansread
You Guys! Janssen Bradshaw @everydayreading and @hadleydesigns FREE summer reading chart is soooo good. I’m going to print out giant ones (easy to do at Staples as an engineering print) and hang them in the basement where we have a lot of wall space. I can already see my little girls using them to play school and filling endless summer days with the creative suggestions—that I didn’t have to come up with 😉👊🏼🤗 #momwin 📚 There are also ways to customize your printable so it’s smaller if that works better for you. These would be perfect for summer reading library programs or for teachers to send home with students for the summer. Did I mention that it’s FREE! 🙌🏽🤗🙌🏽 📚 There’s a button at the top of Janssen’s website that will take you right to it. 📚 I want allll your summer reading suggestions. I’m loading up my list for a summer spent reading while the kids play in the pool. I’m finally at that point in motherhood where all my children can swim on their own!🤗😉 #achievementunlocked What’s on your list? Or what have you loved recently?
