When students practice speaking skills they gain a deeper understanding of the relationships between letters and sounds. The four language skills (listening, speaking, reading, and writing) are interconnected. If students are proficient in each they will be well-rounded communicators. Distinct advantages in society are gained by speaking skillfully; the abilities to persuade, inform, and direct… Continue reading Using Technology To Improve Student Communication Skills
It’s common practice for teachers to send a weekly email with curriculum and event updates to class families. Other than work, I can’t think of any other situation in life where a person would receive weekly emails with a plethora of important dates to remember. These dates I’m referring to directly effect a child’s learning… Continue reading Share Information In Digestable Increments

Examples of virtues we have celebrated this year include respect, honesty, integrity, and tact. Joy is the virtue I chose for the month of May because students and teachers feel a delightful sense of accomplishment… Continue reading Virtue Of The Month: Joy!
I was sitting on the couch Sunday night before returning back to school after spring break and it felt like the day before the first day of school again. I wondered what each one of my students did during the break. I know that some probably had amazing family trips, while others had Pacific Northwest… Continue reading Post Spring Break Connections
It’s hard to believe May is the last full month of school. It’s even harder to grapple with the fact that this might be the completion of work between some teachers and students. People move, change schools, graduate, and teachers are reassigned. How can teachers make an impact in this final stretch of time together?… Continue reading Relationships Are Worth More Than A Score
