Recently, I was reading a post about what a teacher wished she had more of (I can’t find the post or else I’d link to it) – things like more time, more resources, more to help with student achievement.  As I was reading, of course, I was nodding my head in agreement, but I also kept thinking, what I really wish I had more of, was simply, me. I am very lucky.  I have an amazing...

This week my class began our Tree PBL.  PBL (Project Based Learning) is all about voice and choice and giving kids a chance to express what they’d like to do with their learning.  We have finished our Butterfly project (we still are waiting for a few to emerge from their chrysalises, and patience doesn’t come in spades in kindergarten, but I digress…) and I went ahead and took...

Well I’ve had lots of folks ask me, ‘Why aren’t you writing anymore?’  The short answer is, I am.  The longer answer is, while I may not be blogging, the writing is still happening. Over the last couple of years, I’ve shifted away from the daily blogging over to the Facebook page simple because it’s quicker and there seems to be more of a community feel over...

The amazing folks over at ESGI have generously offered a giveaway of a one year subscription to their assessment software.  If you’re unfamiliar with ESGI – take a peek at my introductory post.  This software will literally change the way you assess your students, but more importantly (in my book anyway) – it will change the way you USE that data to teach.
