Pineapple Chart

I have the pleasure each week to see many of you in your classrooms and observe all the amazing things you are doing with your students! So, please take a few minutes to check out the Pineapple Chart in the lounge. This is designed for informal observations! When you are using Kahoot, teaching small group lessons, students are working on genius hour, or using Google Classroom, teaching grammar with mentor text, etc... invite your colleagues to come watch.
