I wish there were teacher blogs when I started teaching! Do you feel that way too? Well, head on over to the Linky Party Michelle is holding at 123 Teach to share your teaching tips. Or if you're a new teacher, get ready to take notes! She is hosting a Linky Party of teaching tips for new teachers. She even provides a cute template for you to use. Check it out! See the link and my tips below.
It really goes to show that blogs are re-defining the boundaries of teacher collaboration and teamwork. So here's a resource related to teamwork for you. I taught a unit on effective teamwork earlier in the year for our How We Organize Ourselves unit (an IB PYP Transdiciplinary Theme). Together, my students and I co-created the rubric below to assess their final teamwork project. Can any of you use this in your classrooms? I'd love to hear your comments!
Finally, where do I go blog stalking to tap into this virtual world of wonderful ideas? Well, today I found a a long list of over 200 blogs. I can't wait to go through them all. This K-2 Linky Party is hosted by Kindergarten Lifestyle. Head on over, if you haven't seen it already.
