We also have fiction and nonfiction books in these displays about family, friendship, and love for Valentine's Day! Encourage your students to browse these displays and try a new style or genre!

SPOTLIGHT ON AN AASL BEST WEBSITES FOR 2016: PHOTOS FOR CLASS
Speaking of Symbaloo, I recently added an AWESOME photograph search engine for classroom use! It was chosen as one of the AASL Best Websites for 2016, and for good reason.  This resource not only provides age appropriate images for all grade levels, but it automatically includes a citation at the bottom of each downloaded image! And, all images included are licensed for public use by the Creative Commons. Make sure to share this resource with your students the next time they need a photograph for a project.
