Northland Term 4 2016 school library network meetings

Posted by: Jeannie 25 Oct 16

Hello Northland Networks

Things have been quiet here in the online community recently for various reasons including a review of the online community platform itself and some changes planned for 2017.  Meanwhile I’ll keep posting the network meeting information - dates and notes etc and look forward to seeing you at one of the face to face meetings…

If you are not the School coordinator for National Library loans in your school, please could you pass on this information to them and encourage them to come along to the network meeting too?

New NZ anti-bullying resource

Posted by: Jeannie 25 Jul 16

Hello Northland networks

I’ve just heard about this newly launched, NZ anti-bullying website created by the Bullying Prevention Advisory Group (BPAG) which is made up of a number of government and non-government organisations.  It may be something to be aware of and share in your school if not already known.

http://www.bullyingfree.nz/ 

Have a look at it - it is nicely designed, clear and simple, and the videos are good too.

Cheers, Jeannie

Storymapping

Posted by: Jeannie 22 Jun 16

Hello Northland Networks, 

At the network meetings earlier this term I mentioned an activity from Marama at Manaia View School Library.

Marama finds that it can be helpful after reading a story aloud to have a little talk about it, to encourage active listening, to recap and share some highlights, to check for understanding and to use some of the language of talking about books.
