We had a few exciting days in our division. We invited the kindergarten, grade one and two  teachers down to Central Office to spend grade alike half days  together, sharing ideas for teaching word work, sentence structures ,think alouds, talk alouds for writing ,writing continuums and choosing PWIM photos with curricular connections. Teachers chose 4 of the 6 stations to go to and add new ideas to their repertoire. Each station had a little “take away” such as book marks, and other useful handouts.There was even a French Immersion section where we discussed adaptations for teaching in a second language. The room was set up in a bright,easily accessible way. Many positive comments came from this day of sharing. Thanks to the Literacy team for all the hard work!!
