On Monday and Tuesday I attended a class called "Elementary Bootcamp"; wow did I learn a lot. It was designed for new elementary teachers. The first day's material was pretty familiar to me. We talked about the core and different assessments our district used. We also got information on Jolly Phonics, which I experienced in my 1st grade student teaching class. Yesterday was all about Daily 5. I felt that I had a good handle on Daily 5 prior to the class, but boy oh boy did I learn so much! Just collaborating and talking with teachers about their ideas was great! It makes me so excited for this school year!
I attended the Iowa Reading Conference earlier this summer and just had to share this picture with you...
