Until Ben’s site is back, many of us need a new place for daily inspiration and motivation. I hope this site can provide a safe place to share teaching ideas.
Thanks for doing this, Michele. I begin school Tuesday. The kids start in earnest next Monday, so I delighting in the benefit of reading the posts from all of you who are already in the process!
Glad you found it…hope to share with others.
Build it and they will come! Awesome practical advice. Your webswite is another example of the generosity of our community. Well done, Michele.
I just want to echo chill’s (Hi, Carol) thanks – and also thank you for letting me know you’ve started the blog. Let’s hope that whatever the issue is with Ben’s blog gets resolved soon – there was so much valuable input there. Of course, this also highlights the danger of having everything at a single source: if something happens, it’s gone.
Maybe if people have saved information from Ben’s blog they could share it here?
Thanks again, Michele!
I agree with all of the above. Thanks so much Michele for opening up another line of communication; I certainly have missed the constant flow of ideas myself and find myself drawing on them quite a bit here at the beginning of school.
Awesome Michele! I’ll be looking forward to your posts. – Stephen
Thank you for doing this Michele! It’s great! I hope you continue even though Ben’s blog is back up!
Well…let me know! My Alaskan teachers have been telling me they love reading about what other people do in their rooms, so I thought this could be helpful for me as well as others. I just don’t know whether it might not be better to contribute to Ben’s and Thomas’ blogs, rather than to add to the site visits!
I love that you’re doing it too, and I don’t mind having another site. you, Ben, Laurie, Thomas, Michel, Stephen… Each one is unique and irreplaceable. You give a voice to people that Ben will never meet. And you have important things to say yourself! … SGS (student-generated stories) revived my class today… It was great. It was just what we all needed… a chance for students to offer their creativity and new spanish skills to our class community and a great review.
and I love peeking into the Alaskan classrooms too, as long as it doesn’t get to be overwhelming for you.
and you can still “publish” things through Ben’s site when they *really* need to reach everyone.
