new topics:

MC left a couple of new comments on the last topic but I thought they warranted a new post:

"Okay so now that we are finished discussing apple pie, whales and curriculum...what do all of those things have in common??? A serious question... has anyone had a huge amount of success using literature circles?"


"Also... what is the most powerful, unique poetry activity you have experienced or taught...
looking for new ideas..."

Ok, lets talk.

Feeding apple pies? To whales? What?

Ok, let me explain.

Remember in our meeting when we said what a good idea it was to start a blog so we could talk and think and then talk some more?

Maybe it's better if I show you what I mean:

go here and watch THIS

just a note: once I get home, this blog will become pretty and the above link will actually BE A LINK. Just sayin'.

Update: DONE!
