Terrific Tech Tool

Create a Virtual Bitmoji Classroom – This is a fun and creative way to create your classroom if we are distance learning at all in the fall. Test it out for the last couple weeks of school! Here is another article that is aimed at libraries but has some good tips for any classroom.

Rad Resource

Mo WIllems is the author and illustrator of picture books like Don’t Let Pigeon Drive the Bus (and many other Pigeon books) and the Elephant and Piggie series.
