I feel like I've been in the land of the lost. I have had no time and very little motivation this week. Working in the summer really cuts into free time! LOL! I only have 2 days left of training then about 2 weeks off before preplanning week. All in all training has been very rewarding. Most of the teachers in our sessions have been so open to change and so positive about the information we shared. One teacher asked my partner and I if we ever come to schools to give presentations. WOW! That made me feel like we had done our job and did it well!
Today I'm so happy to get back in the groove of blogging AND joining my faves over at Collaboration Cuties for their Mentor Text Linky.
This informational text, By the Dawn's Early Light: The Story of the Star-Spangled Banner
gives kids a rich history of our national anthem.
National Archives or The Library of Congress.
By the Dawn's Early Light * you will find used copies at Better World Books...my most favorite used book destination! You may even find some other hard-to-find books there to add to your classroom library.
