Give thanks & read: Get November outreach assets on the Resource Center
Tis the season to give thanks – and somehow, it happened in a total flash!
One minute, I was walking down aisles overflowing with fresh school supplies. But all I had to do was blink, and suddenly I’m trying to figure out who’s offering the best price-per-pound on turkeys and how I’ll ever untangle all of my holiday lights (thanks a lot, Past Me, for just dumping them in the container).
You might feel the same way. Just yesterday, it was August, and you were organizing your classrooms and preparing to welcome students back to school. Now, all at once, the year is nearly a third or more over, and it’s time to start thinking about holiday breaks. (I’m sure that’s not an entirely unwelcome turn of events.)
It might seem a little overwhelming to think about all of the things you need to do before checking out for the year – but try not to worry too much. The OverDrive Resource Center has you covered when it comes to getting your students in the mindset to keep on reading in Sora even during time off, with new promotional graphics and outreach kits to cut through the chaos and give you a little time back.
Native American Heritage Month
November is Native American Heritage Month, and the perfect gateway to year-round tribute to and education about the history, ancestry and traditions of Native Americans in the United States.
Give Thanks & Read
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, what are you thankful for? On this day (and every day!), Team OverDrive is thankful for reading, and we hope you and your students feel the same!
Fall Baking Favorites
Does your school have magazines? For your students who know their way around the kitchen, let them know there are new recipes just waiting to be tried in Sora.
Mental Health Awareness
This time of year can be tons of fun – but it can also be overwhelming and challenging. Remind your students that books are a great way to grab some quiet time and practice self-care with some of our Mental Health Awareness social graphics.
(Tip: To view all the graphics, scroll down to Engage Your Community: Mental Health Awareness)
New Sora coloring sheets
Getting your students to pay attention right before break is a tough task – but our refreshed Sora coloring sheets are a great way to help them occupy any downtime in class.
Don’t forget – you can always browse the Resource Center in your own time to discover all of the new and evergreen resources curated to help you get more out of your digital books.
