To say that I Teach K! in Las Vegas was amazing would be a huge understatement. I really do not think there is a word to describe how this conference was for me. I learned so much that my mind is still spinning and met so many great people. Here are a couple of my favorite pictures from the trip-
Picture was taken while we were walking the strip. Keep in mind the emptiness of the street was a rare sight to see. We took complete advantage of the calm during the day!
The beautiful view outside of the Mirage.
The sessions I attended were fantastic and allowed me to see that I am doing a lot of things correctly already, but did offer suggestions on how to improve those things. I also gained a ton of new knowledge on the Common Core and interventions.
After I got home from Las Vegas, I turned around and headed down to Chicago for a 3 day workshop on the Common Core Standards. Let me tell you, I have not even attempted to read through my notes from this. I learned so much that I am slowly letting everything set in. Here is my favorite picture from Chicago-
Heidi from Sugar Plum Kindegarten, myself, Kim from KinderGals (leader for the Kindergarten sessions,) and Fran from Kindergarten Crayons. These ladies were awesome and helped me to feel more confident in my understanding of the Common Core.
I promise that I will have more to share as I get a better hold on everything that I learned. Until then, please feel free to grab this back to school freebie!
