We’ve Been on Blogcation…

You may have noticed that we haven’t been around.  Somewhere around the end of last school year things got C-R-A-Z-Y in Chicago.  Kristin and I have spent this summer traveling for fun and for work.  We recently had the opportunity to work with an amazing group of teacher in Hawaii on launching a schoolwide iPad program.  (Life’s hard, I know)  We’ve also been writing away as we are working on a project with Stephanie Harvey and Anne Goudvis.  Our goal?  Share ways to use technology meaningfully!  And in other news I, Katie, am expecting a little literacy spark!  Yes, that’s right a baby is on the way.  Boy, does growing a person take a lot out of you.

So it’s been a busy summer.  But, the air is getting that end of summer smell, I’m starting to crave apple pie, and pending an agreement on our new contract we will be back to school in a few short weeks.  That means the blogging is back on!  We’ve got technology, literacy, writing, inquiry, and more in store.  We’ll also be having some guest posts by my fabulous teaching partner Michelle Nash on the Common Core. (A hot topic to be sure.)

While you’re waiting for your posts you might want to check out some of my Pinterest boards.

Amazing classroom libraries!

Tons of great anchor charts

Some just plain cute or practical ideas!

  1. Glad you are back! So much exciting news – congrats on the baby! (I figured as much from some of your other pins . . .) :) Looking forward to hearing more about the integrated tech ideas and of course, CCSS. Take care of yourself!
