Week in Review - Back to 1st Grade

Click to enlarge.
Good morning from Phoenix, Arizona where I'm missing out on the fun of a significant snowstorm. I hope that all of my friends and readers in the Northeast are safe and sound in the storm.

This week I had the privilege of working with teachers and students at Paradise Valley Christian Preparatory in Scottsdale, Arizona. I worked with students during the day and teachers in the afternoon. One of the highlights of the trip for me was working with first grade students. I hadn't spent time with first grade students since I was a first grade student so I wasn't sure what to expect. It was a blast! We made a short video, Skyped with a guest speaker from Canada (thank you Jen Deyenberg), used Go Animate and played some ABCYa games.
