Nowadays, professional development is virtually nonexistent, classroom visits are not encouraged, grade meetings are a historical relic and bulletin boards have become a meaningless chore.
But thankfully educators (and parents) are a tenacious crew. We've found other ways share ideas? One way is through the blogosphere.
Last week I read a post in HALLWAYSKIRSTEN about a beautiful project that unfolded just downstairs and down the hall from my classroom.
The project--Making Books WITH Kids--was a collaboration between an amazing kindergarten teacher and a motivated parent. In her post, Kirsten meticulously documents the process from inception to publication.
I applaud Kirsten, Michelle and all of the young writers.
Thanks for sharing!
