Book Study

I'm so excited about this learning opportunity that will allow us to delve deeper into the Lucy Calkins Units of Study for teaching reading. This is a wonderful chance for you to better understand the how and why of Lucy. Teachers at Ashley Elementary did something similar this past summer and the feedback was wonderful! If you are at all interested in participating in the book study please let me know! It would be wonderful if we could have at least one person per team!!

Learning Walks

A few teams of teachers are about to begin their learning walks within the next few weeks. I'm trying to touch base with each team between now and the end of October and get your learning walks set up. Start thinking of something you might be interested in watching and learning about!!
