It was another great week of reading the thoughts and comments of the various Ontario Edubloggers that I know about. The list that I know is online at this LiveBinder site. If you’re an Ontario Edublogger or you know of one, please consider completing the form so that your efforts can be added to the great musings coming from our province.
From Consultants and SATs
Poor @JacCalder! I think we’ve all experienced those moments when things don’t go according to plan. Check out her Plan B episode!
From K-12 Teachers
@Grade1 shares a great deal about what’s happening in her 1/2 classroom. I found an entry about Literature Circles really interesting to read. How can you go wrong with Robert Munsch.
From Principals, VPs, and Administrators
@ShannonInOttawa writes an incredible insightful post about the shortest of months – February – and how she can justify taking students on a trip to the ski hills. Though her carefully crafted comments, she gives some deep insights as to how she see the value of this activity. A great read if you want an exemplar as to how to justify any field trip.
From Trustees and Higher Ed
I’m going to call my own number on this one. I really like the power of the network and I really like it when the power is demonstrated to show great things for kids. I wrote a little piece about the “comments4kids” hashtag that generated some interesting comments from those who happened to stop by. Not all were positive.
I hope that you’ll take the opportunity to drop by the LiveBinder site and read all of the great Ontario Edublogs regularly. If you’re an Ontario Educator and would like to be listed there, please complete the form.
