We purchased some new digital video cameras in the media center and I practiced using them by taping Mrs. Galvin’s 7th grade Language Arts class playing expository writing musical chairs! I am still unsure as to how to post a video straight onto this Blog, so for now the videos are housed over at YouTube. I have linked them below. Check them out!!!

See you in the library (unless I’m busy teaching research skills!).
