Summer Book Study with MaryBeth

Conferring with Readers - is a highly recommended PD for all reading teachers. Unfortunately the July 27 sessions are full with 11 on wait list.

MaryBeth has so generously offered to do a summer book study of the book on which the PD is based. The group would meet 3x over 3 weeks for an hour at Corner Bakery. With the reading and the last "session" in coaching center you would earn 6 hours ecampus credit. Please email MaryBeth if you are interested.

Another highly recommended session is Teaching Reading in Small Groups - 7 openings 4846.29392 July 29 and 30.

Regardless of how long or how effectively you have been teaching reading, you will be able to take nuggets away from these trainings. Invest in yourself this summer while you have time to reflect on your learning! : )

New Social Studies Materials

According to Tina Melcher the new SS adoption will not be accessible until August. In the meantime here is information that may be helpful to you for summer planning. The new adoption has many materials and resources available!

Be Prepared!! - Review Emergency Protocols

This is the time of year that severe weather tends to occur in our area.

Be sure to review emergency protocols with your team to be prepared for any drills or actual crises. Make sure that materials are highly visible and easily accessible to substitutes. Team members should be aware of any substitutes present and make sure to provide support in case emergency protocols are needed for any reason.
