This week has been a
On Monday, I started my week by beginning our school's Book Talk Club on Debbie Diller's book Math Work Stations with my friends at Sunshine, Sand and Scissors.
We started with Chapter one and it was a great learning time for our K-3 teachers. It is so nice to share ideas with other educators and the best part is that I have found so many wonderful ideas from other blogs. Last year in June, Deedee Wills hosted a Math Work Stations Blog Party for Chapter 1 and 2. All of the links that were shared during her linky party helped us to beef up our book chat. The teachers were very excited about finding grade specific ideas on other blogs.
Then on Wednesday, another K-teacher and I attended a fabulous workshop with one of favorite presenters/bloggers, Kim Adsit. If you have never had the opportunity to attend one of her workshops, you are really missing out. We have seen her numerous times at the SDE Kindergarten Conference in Orlando and in Las Vegas. She is a wonderful speaker. This time we attended DI for the Little Guy. It was awesome! She shared so many wonderful ways to differentiate instruction in the classroom and even helped us to realize that we are often differentiating instruction and not even aware of it. Also, she has so many fantastic free downloads on her website. Check it out!
Now, I am continuing my week of learning in style! It is 10 am and I am still in my jammies, sipping on my favorite cup of coffee and anxiously awaiting the start of Everything's Kindergarten Virtual Teaching Expo. Yes, I paid the whopping price of $14.95 to attend a workshop in my jammies. I have to say...WHAT A DEAL! I can't wait to see what Fran, Hadar, Crystal, and Krissy have to share. I know it will be
Is anyone else still in their jammies waiting for the expo to start?
Is anyone else reading Debbie Diller's Math Work Stations book?
Or....is anyone just glad it is the weekend?
Whatever you are doing today, have a wonderful time!
