Professional Resource of the Week
Our resource this week is shared by Julie Carrera. She says:
This is from a great blog about using anchor charts in reading and writing workshop. This post is about ways to handle the inevitable "I'm done!" exclamation from kids during writing time at the beginning of the year. They always have great pictures of anchor charts that show some simple but powerful ideas!
Gattis in the news!! Our very own Donna Staten will be featured in a special report for her use of Pinterest in classroom instruction. KXAN will be on campus Tuesday morning to film this feature! Kudos to Donna for her notable work with this resource!
