Happy Monday everyone! We are delighted to be here with you at the start of this new week. Over the weekend, we were delighted to discover that more and more authors, educators and writers are generously sharing their gifts with us at home! Check out today's suggestions! Be well!

Kwame Time!

Kwame Alexander, author of The Crossover, Rebound, Swing, and sooo many others, is offering lessons from home! We loved his first lesson, "Poetry with Kwame!" He is engaging and is sure to ignite excitement around poetry in ALL students! Enjoy!

Learn about science through the podcast: Brains On!

We love the Brains On podcast! The latest episode is called "Narwhals: Unicorns of the Sea?" We recommend listening and then jotting down your new learning so you can teach others! We have included some questions to spark your thinking below.
