You’ve been hearing crickets if you’ve visited my little blog here in the last couple months. I took an unexpected break during the last month or so of school and this summer. Ideas weren’t flowing and others things took priority. School has not been at the top of my list this summer as it has been many past summers, and it was a welcome and relaxing change!
I just arrived in Vegas for SDE’s “I Teach” National Conferences. On the way, I made good use of my time and read Reading Wellness, Lessons in Independence and Proficiency by Jan Miller Burkins and Kim Yaris. Adventures in Literacy Land will be hosting a book study on the book next week, so be head over there and check it out.
This book was just long enough to get me excited about the conference and get my head back into “school mode”. I got a couple ideas that I can’t wait to try in my classroom and look forward to building on that with my learning this week.
I’m looking forward to sharing my experiences with you this week!
