Symbaloo in the Library!

With our secondary students using Symbaloo, we thought it was time to bring it to the elementary students through our library main pages. Symbaloo is a visual bookmarking site, and after creating an account, users can build a Symbaloo that includes links to whatever sites they'd like.

Rather than continue to list separate links on our library main pages, we decided to try Symbaloo. While our transition is a work in progress, already the DC Elementary page looks a lot cleaner and more user friendly!

Of course, not everything has made it onto a Symbaloo yet, but grade-level links have been moved. Check out our kindergarten and 3rd grade Symbaloos:
Kindergarten Symbaloo

3rd grade Symbaloo
All kinds of things are on the Symbaloos, but mostly we included sites about books and authors, resources for student work, and online games that support classroom work. Be sure to check the library main pages often as we will add to the Symbaloos throughout the year!

  1. You are going to love using Symbaloo! I used it last year and it made accessing links so much easier. Plus, it's easier to update than my library webpage. I even got my third grade team to use it for their links.
