Currently March...

 
 

It is a quiet house! Nice to have this calming effect before going to sleep!

I had to get up extra early this morning to head out for a workshop 2 1/2 hours away. My sweet husband even got up and offered to make some coffee. Right now the dogs are nearby... looking as cute as can be all curled up sleeping by my side.

I spent the day at a Kagan K-1 Cooperative Learning workshop. I love how energizing and fun these workshops are! I learned new cooperative learning strategies, and am excited about how to incorporate one this week. I think I will try bringing my shoulder partners talk on the floor to a 4 group interaction with Round Robin Rally. I am beat though!

I still really want my very own ipad. Wish I could say I needed it. What I really need is some play time! I have had a few busy weeks with classes after work, report cards, conferences, etc. I am looking forward to this week with no classes- only on-line discussions.

Today, I really enjoyed the people I interacted with at the Kagan workshop. Everyone seemed to be smiling and having a good time. I love the positive boost I felt most of the day. On the way back home, I have to say traffic jams are a bit annoying... especially ones that double the length of your trip!



Good night! Looking forward to reading other currently's tomorrow am with a cup of coffee!

  1. Love Kagan workshops! I attended one a few years ago at Disney. It was the BEST professional development I have ever attended! I use Kagan daily, often in every lesson through out the day.

  2. I was really wanting my own iPad too and finally ended up getting one so I could stop wanting it. And I love it!

  3. I've never attended a Kagan workshop, but I got excited at the prospect of a fun and energizing PD! I'll definitely have to look into it :) I'm glad I found your blog through Currently!

  4. I have had my very own IPAD for a couple of months and I LOVE it! As soon as I reached my goal on TpT I went out and bought one! Very happy - In fact I am listening to music on it right now!

    So glad I found your blog - I love it!
