Week 4 #KidlitSummerSchool Schedule, Updates, Cool News and a GIVEAWAY

KLSS 2015 BadgeHello, Summer Schoolers! Week 3 has drawn to a close, and (can you believe it?!) we are about to embark upon Week 4 of Kidlit Summer School 2015. Hope you’re nearing plotting genius Nerdy Chicks!

Just like the first three weeks, we want to give you a preview of what is to come in the week ahead, and offer up reminders for our other great Summer School Events like out #30mdares and Webinars, etc. Here we go!

Pop Quiz: Don’t forget we will post a Pop Quiz on the blog at the end of the day. (Just for fun!)


Class Schedule for Week 4:

Great posts heading your way. Check out this awesome guest blogger line-up!


This Thursday at 8pm ET we will be hosting a webinar with librarian/educators Matthew Winner and Betsy Bird who will share their expertise on children’s books from their side of the teacher’s desk. Keep an eye on your email for details on registering for this webinar and how to submit your questions for the panel.

Even though Summer School is almost “over,” we have a couple more great webinars lined up in the next few weeks. So keep looking for details on the blog and in your emails! For more information about the Webinars, please refer to the FAQ page in the navigation bar above.


If you are having email issues, please visit the FAQ page before contacting us with a question. We have found that almost all glitches thus far are user or server error. If you have tried everything else and still cannot get your email to work, contact a member of the Kidlit Summer School Board. We are working hard on this and other aspects of Summer School, so please know that it may be up to five business days before you hear back from us. Look for your next email tonight or tomorrow morning.

The Facebook Group

A quick reminder if you are still trying to get into the Facebook group (and why wouldn’t you? We’re having so much fun there!). If you have registered for Kidlit Summer School, have asked to be added to the FB group, and did not get added within a day, it may be because your FB name did not match up with your registration name. If this is the case, one of us will have sent you a message via FB. Sometimes these messages end up in the OTHER folder. Please check this folder to see if you have heard from one of us and answer any messages there. This will help us sort things out.

Nerdy Chick

Art by Mike Ciccotello

There’s still time to doodle those Nerdy Chicks and send to us. The cotest runs until the end of Kidlit Summer School! Thanks once more to Mike Ciccotello who drew a Nerdy Chick on a coffee cup and tweeted to Kami and Sudipta, for inspiring our contest. The winners will be picked by an industry professional and be added to our cafe press store! Also, they will receive a prize pack with their own design on it. The rules:

1. Draw a Nerdy Chick.

2. Tweet the image to @leezaworks with the hashtag #NerdyChicksDraw AND/OR share on our Facebook Group page with the same hashtag.

3. Do this before the final day of Kidlit Summer School!

How easy is that? We look forward to seeing the chicks all over social media! (Psssst – Mike, you’re already one of the winners!)

  9. Okay, where is the pattern for the nerdy chick? Gives me an idea to make one out of my daughter’s Perler Beads. A creative craft for the afternoon, perhaps? So cute.
