Last weekend, I took the train to Manhattan to go to Teachers College’s biannual Saturday Reunion with one other teacher from Center. This is a day of FREE PD for teachers and well worth the crack of dawn wake-up and travel. At one of the sessions, a staff developer shared that the anchor chart sticky notes are NOW AVAILABLE as a single page. Since teachers have been taking screen shots or adjusting printer settings to print four-six to a page, this news received an enthusiastic response from the teachers in the audience. I can’t wait to share it with Center teachers!
Here is this week’s roundup of literacy links for some quick inspiration, tips, and refreshment:
