What is Your "One Thing"?

Around this time of year, minds are often in two places...heading towards June (preferably last date of June!) and September-the fresh start! These seem like the best two places to be, yet there are reasons to love May as well. The weather is finally (finally...finally...) starting to improve and some students/as well as adults, are enjoying more sunshine and outdoor air. May is also the perfect month to get the last stretch of best instruction into practice, while also thinking ahead about what we did well this year and need to continue to work on. A brilliant suggestion that was mentioned to me by a colleague was thinking about "One Thing". Instead of being overwhelmed by the numerous items we want to continue to do really well, and the wealth of information we are excited to dig into during spring/summer reading, why not focus on "One Thing?" This week's articles/graphics cover a variety of topics that could fit with your ONE THING. Being the collaborative group that we are, we could probably offer each other ideas and information about everyone's ONE THING. If interested, follow the padlet link below. It will lead you to a corkboard where you can post your ONE THING, as well as comment on other people's one things!
