Great way to integrate Google Docs into your blog posts! I am sure that I will be referring to your lists for book suggestions for students.
I second Heather's comment! Nice way to make the two resources work together. And if/as you continuously update the book lists on the respective Google docs, the changes will be reflected when your blog readers click through, so you know they're always reading the most current version.Were these lists generated by your students? Your students may be interested in visiting Mister K Reads, a book review blog written by Tim Ketel, a Minnetonka 4th grade teacher. His blog's goal is "to help my students and other curious readers find books that are JUST RIGHT for them." He focuses on books appropriate for 9-10 year olds, but, as he says, you never know when you might pick up a book and fall in love with it. Find Mister K Reads at http://misterkreads.blogspot.com/
I'm going to start playing around with Booklist, another Web 2.0 tool. I think it might be faster to add to the lists via Booklist. The next project I am going to tackle is setting up a resource list of picture books to teach mini lessons. In other words, some books are excellent for teaching more than one skill. Rather than typing the same title again, I think it would be better to just give a title multiple tags. That might also help a teacher create a wish list. If certain books are good for teaching multiple skills, then best to purchase those resources first.?I'll keep you posted. Pun intended!
This is a wonderful idea. I know I'll be using your blog when I need to find good books for kids.
I have found another resource for finding books of interest to our elementary readers. The Children's Series Binder http://seriesbinder.lishost.org/index.php/Main_Page created by the Webster Public Library of Webster, New York.
