I have a copy somewhere and I was freaking out because I couldn't find it. Then a colleague offered to let me borrow hers (yay!).
So I was totally shocked when on Twitter last night at 8:50, I noticed this:
I have never been on Blackboard before, but I LOVED it. I could hear everyone's voices and chat at the same time. Katie (my new idol) did a powerpoint on Kindergarten Writing and how to help them grow and learn. It was so engrossing.
I took away this...
Every child is a WRITER and he/she is 5 YEARS OLD. They aren't going to write like a 25 year old. It is such a great way to think about children. They are WRITERS and READERS but they are also 5 years old, adjust your expectations accordingly and be amazed by who they are.
