celebrate. It's always a fun way to start my Saturday morning; however this Saturday I will be at the Literacy Connection listening to Chris Lehman speak. He was here in October and returns today. I'm excited to learn more and have a chance to visit with some friends.
I had an amazing week! One of those weeks when everyday I was thankful for a big event which helped me grow professionally and our family was blessed this week with several exciting events. Life has it's ups and down but when life is up I have learned to appreciate it and have extreme gratitude.
One of my highlights was having the opportunity to visit a third grade classroom during math workshop. I've been working with our math coach, McKenzie. She is constantly asking me questions that help me to think deeper. In the beginning I was a little intimidated because I didn't know the answers but once I learned it was a conversation of learning my mind shifted and I embraced the learning. We spent over an hour observing Kami's classroom and listening to her students share their mathematical practices and thinking. I wrote down as much as I could I wan interested in the "talk." I will be processing what I heard and am anxious to begin to think about how I can apply my new learning to fifth grade. I am thankful for this opportunity and the celebrations of this week.
