Circus 1 2 3, by Guido Van Genechten is a new counting book available in the Curriculum Resource Center (JUV G3262ci in the CSCL section of the library—under the new books sign).
In this entertaining counting book, the reader can count as talented circus ladybugs perform dazzling feats! Count from 1 to 10, or from 1 to 55. Find the special red-headed ladybug, too!
Hi! I’m Jen Harvey, the new Head Librarian and Assistant Professor for the Curriculum Resource Center. In addition, I’m the library liaison to the School of Teaching and Learning and the School of Intervention Services. I’m looking forward to meeting you, ideally through your visits to the CRC or through email exchanges as you, for example, request materials that will enhance your instruction and research needs.
Most recently, I served in a similar role at the University of Nebraska, Kearney. Librarianship is a second career for me (one that I love!). Most of my adult life I lived in the San Francisco Bay Area, where I mainly worked in the technology field.
I’m thrilled to be here and hope to see you or hear from you soon!
That’s right, I said top dogs. On Monday, January 27, the American Library Association announced which titles took the prizes for the 2014 book awards! The CRC already has several of these ready for checkout and the rest are on their way! So come on in and see these literary champions for yourself!
We know some of you have your edTPA due in February and we have something to help you out! Check out this guide which provides insight and resources into the various sections of this assessment. Click here for the edTPA online guide!
Your friends at the CRC know: YOU CAN DO IT!
