Abbett All-Star Article
We have had a wonderful start back this week! Thank you for starting off with a bang and keeping the kids engaged in meaningful learning. I loved being back in classrooms and providing feedback to each of you. If you are like me, it has been tough getting up in the mornings and easy falling asleep at night!
For some kiddos here at Abbett, getting back into the swing of things can be tough. The following article has some good insight into helping kids in poverty transition to stability here at school. Happy Reading!
Love that Abbett All-Star Spirit!
Hands-on learning in 2nd grade to kick off the new year!
Excellent way of differentiating! Students read and respond to texts that are "just right" for their individual learning!
Thanks, Alissa, for your hard work on this resolution board!
Don't forget the Twitter challenge! Social media is a great place to share all the wonderful things that are happening in your classroom! When your team all has twitter accounts and is "tweeting", let me know and the prize will be determined!
The following article is a great reminder of how to transform teaching and learning and the importance of teaching kids how to think! I hope it inspires you like it has inspired me!
