The Night World by Mordicai Gerstein

The Night World by Mordicai Gerstein is about a boy's experience waking up in the middle of the night and exploring the night world.  His cat Sylvie is his guide as they explore the shadows of his house and the garden outside.  There he meets all the nocturnal animals waiting for the sunrise.  And when it finally comes, it is glorious!  The illustrations in this book make you feel like you are in that moment filled with shadows and starlight.  When sunrise happens, the sunlight beams out from the book.  This is a special book that all will enjoy.

Google Goodness

For Staff:

Last week, I was asked to do a workshop on using Google for Education.  As Google is really big(!!), I exhibited how I use many of the Google Apps, then let participants play with whatever tool they found interesting.  If you missed it, not to worry.  You can view my presentation here: Google Sandbox Presentation.  You will need to be logged in to your wwsu account.  Also you can visit the website I designed for this showcase (Again, need to be logged into your wwsu account): My Life According to Google.  Feel free to ask me any questions or get some help using any of these tools.
