I just discovered Miss Monica’s Summer Link Up and think it’s a great way to get to know other teacher bloggers. This week’s topic is “An Accomplishment I Am Proud Of”.
My professional bucket list has included presenting at a teacher conference for quite awhile. In February I was able to check that item off my list when I taught four sessions at the Georgia Preschool Association Annual Conference.
The workshop I developed, Books You Can Count On, focused on seeing favorite children’s books as more than just language and literacy tools but as a way to achieve your mathematics standards, too.
I was pleased to see the display table came together just as I had envisioned. I referenced over 25 classic books in the workshop and had dozens & dozens of samples for the preschool teachers to see up close. Leading a workshop for teachers requires just as much planning and preparation as teaching a lesson to youngsters!
Each session was set up for 40 participants and I’m proud to say every seat was filled in all four sessions. In fact, we were overflowing a couple of times and folks were sitting on the floor!
I’m very excited that I get to present Books You Can Count On again this summer in Tampa! Sharing my workshops with teachers is certainly an accomplishment I’m proud of!
