I've just returned from a country town, where I did a full day Primary PD for two local schools. It's always wonderful to see teachers' faces light up when they see grammar in a new way, and I really enjoyed hearing them discuss how they can use Shoebox in the classroom. Thanks also to the teacher who suggested the Quick Reference cards (a fantastic idea!) which is next on my to do list for the Members Library.
I usually switch off in the car on the way home and listen to music. This time, however, I was so fired up by the Quick Reference card idea that is started me thinking about new ways to run PD workshops and also to sequence lessons in the classroom.
Thanks again to those two schools! I'll see you both shortly.
