This summer our professional development involves getting ready to implement the spelling program Words Their Way. Does anybody else out there use this program. I'd love some tips you may have tried. It looks labor intensive but we'll see. I do like the sorting activities as I think my students will really get into these and have fun at the same time.

Pardon the "newbieness" of my page. I am in the process of having a blog designer help me. Christi at Designs by Christie is working on a new look for me.
My" Inventors" summer camp is going really well. Today we invented board games. These kids are so creative and we played the  games after designing and making them. I did not win a single one! They thought that was hilarious! I will try to experiment with adding pictures tomorrow.

Hi there! I set a goal to get started blogging this summer so here goes! School was officially out just a week ago and I've actually been busy ever since! Last week I got to attend a technology conference for two days. It was great and I learned a lot and have a lot to try this summer. We are getting Ipads next year so I'm getting used to one now. This week I am co-leading a summer camp with another teacher. Our theme this year is inventions. We have second thru fifth graders and they are having a ball!
