The bad part was setting my alarm clock for a Saturday morning...
The great part was going back to the NAEYC Convention for some more great inspiration...
I loved a presentation by Judy Ross on extending read-alouds through scientific inquiry and math explorations. I will definitely be having my students create aluminum foil boats to see if their gingerbread man cookies can float on water. We will also be counting how many coffee filter "caps" a student can wear....
I collected lots of great ideas from this presentation.
So, in celebration of having 998 Likes on Facebook....
And having picked up lots of great freebies at the NAEYC Convention....
I am going to give a way a bag of goodies to one person who comments on this post.
