Saturday, I celebrated connecting to smart educators by posting to Ruth Ayer’s Celebration blog. (If you are looking for another place/day to post your writing, I recommend this!!) Today I am posting my expanded revision of this same post!
Maggie Beatty was my small group staff developer at TCRWP in 2010. I learned so much from her that summer and I stayed connected to her brilliance through #TCRWP and then when Kate and her began their Indent blog.
When they posted asking for real problems writing teachers experience, I thought why not. I’ll send them one or two.
How fun that this week, they posted their first video sharing a practical way to solve a problem by making and using a DIY (do-it-yourself) Literacy toolkit page with a small group or during a conference.
Take a minute and watch their brilliance HERE!!
Immediately after watching the video, I sent it to many of my literacy teacher friends who wrote back, just as excited as I was!!
And then of course, this video inspired me to use my Michael’s coupon on Sunday to purchase MY TOOLS.
My first page is written!!
Next update – my reflection on using it with students!
I continue to celebrate connecting to smart educators!!!
I can’t wait for the DIY Literacy book to come out.
You can pre-order it HERE
