"Summer To Do List"

It is here... SUMMER!!  Well, Almost!!  Unfortunately, for educators, it means only a few days off. Many of you will be attending classes, planning for next year, moving rooms, training new staff, and so much more. Since, I am such a nice person, I thought I would add a few more items to your "Summer To Do List." 

My goal for the 16-17 school year is to have every educator (Grades 2-12) using Google Classroom. This is possible!!  I will do anything to make my "DREAM" come true.  You will see Google Classroom in your "Summer To Do List" below. 

I created "Summer To Do Lists" per buildings to fit your needs.  Some of you have a jump start, use your best resource -- EACH OTHER!!

Washington Educators  -- SUMMER TO DO LIST

Did you know tool boxes and padlocks are required in education?  They are being used to engage students and reinforce the 4 c's....Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, and Creativity. The best news it is CONTENT driven.... It is called BreakOut Edu.  Breakout Edu is a learning game that focuses on teamwork and problem solving. Click  this website for more information:

Stacie and I had the privilege to be in many classes during the last two weeks of school. We have been telling each other this is the best way to end the school year.  With the support of TLC, Administration, and the Technology Dept, we hope to have more "BREAKOUT EDU BOXES" for next year.  Get a head start and see how you can incorporate this concept into your classroom.  Touch base with your colleagues and get their input.... Macie, Jodi, Lindsey, Gini, Julia, Faith, Missy, Chelsey L., Chelsea R., James, Katie, Amber, and Ed. Best resource -- EACH OTHER!!

Have a great summer!
