Every once in a while, a blog I read goes dark, that is, there are no new posts for a really long time. As a blogger myself, I definitely understand how this can happen. It has currently happened to me! This post is just to let you know that I’m still here and I have lots of new content for you in the next few weeks.
Friday is the last day before our Spring Break. It feels so close and at the same time, it feels so far away. The run up to Spring Break is always hard–kids get antsy, teachers get burned out, and everyone is anxious to have some time off. Our break is based around the Easter holiday, so most of the other public schools in the counties/districts around us have already had their breaks and are back in school…and we haven’t left yet.
The hectic time of year plus a new part-time job have been taking their toll on me, time-wise. This accounts for the lack of posts, comments, and interactions in the world of TPRS/CI blogging.
Come Friday, though, my schedule will be considerably more open. You can look forward to posts about all kinds of things, including, but not limited to:
-New free stories that I have created to use in class (for various levels!)
-Reflections on assessment
-(More) Best practices that I have learned for using CI and storytelling in the FLES classroom
There is a lot of information to share and I hope to get it out as soon as I can.
Thanks for reading and thanks for your comments!
