Personality Predicting + Wordle = Cool!

We have been immersing ourselves in Amy Krouse Rosenthal's work, both book and video format, in anticipation of her upcoming visit. Many of us feel like we have a sense of who she is from her work. So...we started brainstorming adjectives to describe what we predict will be Amy's personality. Such a cool exercise. We then popped the adjectives into Wordle and created a piece of art.

Glogster Late Adopter

I don't know what it was about Glogster, but when I tried it last, I found myself frustrated. If things are not intuitive, I tend to go on to something else that is easier to use. That being said, I loved the Glogster poster our HS librarian made for a visiting author, so I asked for a tutorial to get my head around it.

And what do you know? Maybe it was just having someone sit next to me while I worked (that is always so nice, isn't it? just in case you have questions...), but I now LOVE Glogster. L.O.V.E.

And this poster for our upcoming visit from Amy Krouse Rosenthal--it's the coolest thing I've seen in a while! I've printed them out and am hanging them around the school to get us all pumped for her upcoming visit.
