    I'm using Common Core materials in my math tutoring this summer so I feel that's giving me a good picture of the lessons and activities I'll plan and use during the school year.

    I have a coaching workshop next week...I love working with other teachers and learning from each other!:love:

    Other than those, I may do a bit of professional reading, but I do think that my 'off time' in the summer gives me an opportunity to go back rejuvenated...:cool:

    Does pinning new ideas to my Pinterest boards count?? :)

    I am also going to a math intervention workshop at the end of August which will be good. I feel like my math instruction could use a boost and I'm hoping this course will help me better meet the needs in my classroom.

    :spitwater: I'm not sure Tabatha takes over classrooms, but maybe she should start! I think you are better off sticking to the ideas found in Harry Wong's book! Enjoy!

    How do you remap your curriculum?

    We have had access to Google Drive training also. I considered signing up but wasn't sure what it was or how I would incorporate it in my classroom. Can you elaborate on this?

    Google drive is a "cloud-based" storage space. Edmodo will allow you to connect a google drive account to your account. I actually have 2 G-Drive accounts (one for each gmail account - one for home & one for school). By keeping my documents on my Gdrive, I don't have to carry flash drives around or worry which computer I saved something to. In addition, if I want to share a file with someone, instead of attaching it to an email (many files are too large), I simply "share" it with that person - no matter the size. I hope this makes sense!

    I am really late to this thread but I just saw this - you get to do a 4 day Kagan workshop through your district...for free?!?!? :woot: I am extremely jealous!!! I got a huge discount on a 2 day Kagan workshop for SoCal residents ($50 instead of the usual...$300? $400?) but if I want to do more I have to shell out the hundreds required...SIGH!

    Anyway, in response to the original thread, I'm revamping my library (doing it as I write this actually - taking a break!), getting ready to implement Reading A to Z, and reading a couple of PD books. Right now I'm rereading Daily 5, and CAFE is next. I have a couple math books, too. We'll see how much I can get in!
