Needless to say I am SO glad this school year is upon us.
First, Dewey's Read-A-Thon is just a few weeks away. This year's celebration of reading is October 13th.
This is a day when I like to take a few hours and just read. As an avid reader, I find that this day refreshes me. It helps me remember why I love the beauty of our language and the story teller that lives within us all. (It is also an excuse to eat cupcakes all day!) You can read more about the readathon here.
I'm currently working on my schedule of books for the day. I'm open to suggestions!
On another note, I'll be speaking at TCEA in February. Many of my blogger-buddies follow me for Instructional Technology Tips. I'll be posting more details about my upcoming presentations soon. If you are going to be at TCEA let me know, I'd love to schedule a few meet ups!!
I'm super excited to be presenting on our Flipped Classroom experience. I promise our presentation on Social Media in the school community will be both fun and enlightening. If you are there - let's chat!!
Don't Teach the Canary Not to Sing
I began reading this as part of a class I'm taking, but it is also our school book study. I've really enjoyed the format and appreciate the information. School culture is so vital to the educational process. If you are in education you should read it. I've learned much - and I'm looking forward to finishing this book and incorporating much of what I've learned into my practice.
Enjoy the week!
