    SLS YOGA & MINDFULNESS IN THE SCHOOL LIBRARY

    With Shari Vilchez-Blatt of Karma Kids Yoga

    Mindfulness is a natural quality that we all have. It's available to us in every moment if we take the time to appreciate it. When we practice mindfulness, we're practicing the art of creating space for ourselves-space to think, space to breathe, space between ourselves and our reactions. Mindfulness is becoming more aware of where you are and what you're doing, without becoming overly reactive or overwhelmed by what's going on around you. Join Shari as she shares yoga and mindfulness activities and tools for calming the mind. And great "yoga breaks" that you can share with your students.

    SLS GRAPHIC NOVELS IN THE LIBRARY & CLASSROOM

    This full day workshop will start with a keynote from author Don Brown, publishers sharing favorite titles and an afternoon session with Joyce Laiosa. Comic books, graphic nonfiction, and graphic novels continue to ignite the reading imagination of young people from new titles such as Tiger vs. Nightmare to Hey, Kiddo and superheroes alike. Today just might be a new golden age of comics. Comics are completely integrated into the reading life of young people and receive notice through major awards from librarians. This workshop will provide suggestions for books that work with book groups and with multi-part programs; and using comics for specific curriculum plans. We will also pair comics with other texts and illustrated books as we work to engage all possibilities for reading fun. There will be a short comic history; for novices we will talk about how to read and enjoy comics; what one should look for in comics as we analyze some specific pages; and finally looking at diversity in the recent past as well as the newest comics. Librarians are encouraged to bring administrators, classroom teachers, reading teachers, and ENL teacher partners.
