So busy...
Went back to work on Tuesday..ya..i know you all feel really sorry for me. I can just feel it. I can. trust.me. Anyway, i have been in meetings all week. I spent half a day Tuesday in my classroom..the furniture is where it needs to be, I have my calendar up, and will get more up on the walls next week. Anyway, I spent 3/4 (look mindy, i did math) of today in an inservice. It was one of the MOST inspiring speakers I have been too. The woman's name was Peggy Cambell Rush. She was there to talk to us today about writing in early childhood classrooms. It is hard to describe how elated and inspired I feel about using the simple everyday household items she described to help my students develop the fine motor skills needed to become successful writers. Once they have the process down, they can go anywhere. I will keep you updated! (and probably bore you too)

It's always so neat to find things that are useful and simple, isn't it?

How refreshing...a teacher workshop that actually invigorates and informs...our superintendent use to read (in monotone) to us out of the teacher's handbook...glad yours was much better!
