Using Google Slides For Our Virtual LIVE Library Schedule....Links, Posters, Videos and More!

This year more than ever it is important for us to make learning and reading extra special.  As I wrote about last week, we will be hosting LIVE daily events from the library and classrooms, and by bringing in other guests and celebrations too.

Last week as we went back to school, we kicked off these special events and it was a big success and so much fun for our students at school and for those learning at home.
Since I will be setting these special events up each week, I want to make it easy and convenient for everyone so I created a Google Slides presentation that I published online.  
Each week, I will create a new slide and put that one at the front so it is viewed first. 
I embedded that Google Slide presentation on our website under a new page and on the front of our library and remote learning site. 

I sent it out every Sunday and will print it off so they can have it in their classrooms. 
I also added it to our social media channels for the library and school. 
On the weekly event slide, everyone will find the LIVE Virtual Pop-In Storytimes and... and illustrator event posters we will use to share the news and information on that special guest and event. 

We will have at least one special guest each week.  We are super excited about that. 
I am also very excited about the weekly events that Skype in the Classroom is hosting.  This week we are going to learn about the migration of the monarch butterflies. 

You will find the upcoming and archived events from Skype in the Classroom here

As our year goes on, our students and teachers are excited to give lots of input on who and where they'd like to connect with for these events.  I can't wait to see where this new edition to our library program will take us. 

And I can't wait to look back on our Google Slides throughout the year to see all of the amazing events that will bring us together.
