We came across Sarah’s blog post about the 2013-2014 Iowa Goldfinch Award Unit and it caught our attention. In this blog post, Sarah shares that the Iowa Goldfinch Away Unit develop positive student-teacher relationships and foster love for reading from her students. We wanted to learn more and share this with all of you! Sarah’s video in this Educator Spotlight will tell us how she is currently using Symbaloo as a Teacher-Librarian, she will tell us more about the the Iowa Goldfinch Award, and the best part is how she uses Google Draw and Symbaloo to create an engaging and fun experience for her students.
