I love Brian's idea of Genius Hour in the Library.
I would also like to suggest SKYPE Author Visits to school Libraries.  Authors using Skype can visit Libraries and Classrooms ANYWHERE there is a Skype connection and a compatible time zone.  Meeting authors and discovering how their favorite books are thought up, written and published is a terrific way to HOOK Kids on Reading. . . and writing their own stories.  I have Skyped Globally in classrooms from India to  New Zealand. Reading is a wonderful way to introduce learning that is fun, multicultural, and creates open-mindedness and compassion for others. 
Please help spread the "Reading is Fun" word.

This is an idea I would like to share. All these terrible bush fires we have here in the US burn thousands of homes and cause so much loss and misery. Why can't people in these danger areas run water pipes, pierced like soaker hoses, across their roofs? When fire danger is imminent, turn on the water, and keep it on until danger passes--homes would stay wet and not burn.
Is this feasible?
