I am turning the Big 5-0 in April (where does the time go?!), and have decided my word of the year is ‘spectacular’. On December 31st, when I look back on my year, I want to describe 2016 as SPECTACULAR! I challenged my 4th & 5th grade students to pick their word for 2016, and created a Wordle word cloud with their answers. Awesome and amazing were the most popular words, but I loved the creativity of some of my students when they listed fantabulous, specialistic, and sparkelicious!
As the Creative Librarian, I try to bring creativity into my library, and part of my creativity comes out in my bulletin boards and book spine art!
