Happy Friday Friends! I'm sharing a few quick pics and thoughts from my week. Have a great weekend! :)
Monday was MOVING DAY! I am still the kid that gets all excited on the first day of school, except as teachers, we get to have that day twice. The first hit of adrenaline is the day we move all our new goodies from summer into our classrooms to set up. I'll share more on Monday for Monday Made-Its, but here's a quick pic of my car as we began loading!
Tuesday we headed down to the BEACH!
Here's another beach pic. This one is quite obviously of my sweet boys playing in a fountain. :)
BOOKS, BOOKS, and MORE BOOKS!
I posted earlier about the need for teachers to be readers. I accomplished this task with great enthusiasm this week. :)
I didn't play all week! ;) Last night I participated in a Twitter Chat with the IRA (International Reading Association). Have you tried this? Twitter chats are great ways to connect with people with the same interests all over the world. This particular chat was on DIGITAL WRITING in the classroom! A wonderful hour of professional development. The format is easy. Someone poses a question with a "Q" and a number, for example "Q1," and the hashtag that matches the chat. (#irachat) Then fellow tweeters answer and discuss the question by starting their tweets with "A1," for ANSWER, and the correlating number of that question. Super simple and super easy! All you need is a free TWITTER account, and you are ready to learn!
