Teaching Channel - More Inspiration
I don't know about you but teacher "blogland" has really been my Professional Development aside from getting my Masters last year. With budget cuts you can no longer go to conferences. I think the last one I went to was over six years ago. Oh of course you can still attend them but you will have to fund them out of your pocket. I was really happy to come across the Teaching Channel. If you are not already familiar go to their site and join for free. You can receive short videos on topics you are interested in.
These are wonderful since you are able to see a classroom in action and fabulous teachers sharing their ideas. Since I can't go to a weekend conference I have to do the best next thing. I love this video since I can totally use this wonderful game with my students.
I just love that teachers are being so resourceful and are always willing to share. Try and play the Trash Can game and 101 and Out, (Place Value) and see if you kids love it too!
You can also get quick tips. Instead of using Popsicle sticks check out the index cards, my kids have loved it.
