I committed a week and a half ago to #TeachersWrite. I was ready to jump in and try some different writing. I created a plan and even though I had no idea what I was going to write about -- I was going to write.
So far, I have nothing. (Here come the excuses . . . )
Last week was the last week of school and it was crazier and busier than I ever expected. End of the year activities and last minute projects. Prepared treats for birthday celebrations and attended a retirement dinner and staff outing. Volunteered at Feed my Starving Children with my church community group - by the way, an awesome experience and hope to share more later! Oh, and did I mentioned that I'm a wife, a mom of twins, and there is always a list of things to do around the house???
Yeah, it was that crazy busy! Then I received an email:
"Oh, and that post for #IRAEngage? Could you get that to me three weeks earlier?"
So, I was writing, just not what I thought I was going to be writing!
I'm excited to share my second post on the Teacher to Teacher IRA Engage blog! They created a new column, The Social Life: New Media Tools for the Classroom and debuted with a post I wrote about Goodreads: A Reading Community Heaven.
I hope you check it out and find it helpful! (If you missed the first post I wrote for IRA Engage, I wrote about the exciting and very addictive Pinterest: Do You Have Any Pinterest in Learning More?) Thanks for your support!
