Today I was at school all by myself. Ok, not all by myself, but without any students there. It was a work day for teachers before students return tomorrow. And it’s definitely a nice way to ease back into the school routine slowly.
I had a couple of goals today, one of them being this new bulletin board:
It’s right at the front of the room, behind the rocking chair I sit in for read aloud and much of our carpet time. I hope it becomes a place where we can have daily conversations about the world, specifically about the people and places we’re connecting with via our blogs. The plan is to mark the places where visitors (and those who leave comments) to our site are from. I anticipate some really rich conversations around culture and geography will spark from this map–thanks to you, our readers. Can’t wait to see how full the board becomes as the year goes on.
Will you help us? We’d love to set the goal of getting as many different pins as possible on our map! Be sure to leave us a comment after you read and tell us a little about your town and yourself. My kids would love it if you did the same on their blogs, as well, which can be found at www.kidblog.org/MrsBeardensClass2.
Can’t wait to see who we will meet this year!
