I had the best time at the SDE Pre-K Conference. I was incredibly humbled to be able to present alongside some amazing, and incredibly famous teachers!
One of whom I have admired for years!!
Yes, Kim Adsit!
I have sat in on so many of her sessions and I never get tired of her enthusiasm for helping other teachers. She is so inspiring!
Since many of you weren't there to hear my session, I thought I might share with you some of my slides and briefly mention what I discussed...
Drum roll please...
Interactive Notebooks for Little Learners with me!
During my session I mentioned that Interactive Notebooks/Journals can be used a variety of ways with a variety of ages. In my opinion they can be used from age 2-college age. However, they are used very differently at each age range. Here is my definition of an interactive journal for ages 2-7.
Then, I discussed some reasons why you should be using them in your classroom!
Then, we discussed how to get started!
I also gave a couple Management Tips. These will look different in every classroom and at every age. You know your kiddos and you know what they can and cannot handle!
I highly recommend checking out Lucky Little Learner's series on Interactive Notebooks. She has some great ideas on how to manage interactive notebooks.
Even though I was incredibly nervous about presenting at SDE, I highly recommend it. I felt like I was able to mark off a huge item from my bucket list!!! Not sure if I will ever get this opportunity again, but I am very thankful for it. I also hope some of my 51 attendees took something away from my session.
Thanks for stopping by!
