You might not want to read this post...

So, I really went back and forth about whether to write this blog post.
I mean, this is information the world needs to know right?
I don't know...this is a Teaching and Learning Blog.
All of my posts should be about Teaching and Learning.
Well, who doesn't want to learn about this?
Okay here we go....

It's a surprise "Grown Up, Teachery" Book Talk Tuesday!  

I recently went to Dave Burgess's workshop about his book Teach Like a Pirate, and this what greeted us as we walked it.
and then......
He didn't even talk about it until half way through his presentation.
I don't want to ruin it if you ever get to go and see him
(and if you ever get that opportunity...GO!)

This is one of those teaching tools he calls a "hook".
It certainly "hooked" me in and got my attention!

He calls this kind of hook the "Taboo" hook.  Giving up some kind of secret or "taboo" information.
Good huh?  I am not going to tell you the secret, you will have to go and see him.

I was lucky enough to get to spend and entire day with Mr. Burgess.

By the end of the day I was TIRED and I sat the whole time.
Dave Burgess is ON FIRE about teaching.
He is passionate x2 and made me really think about a lot of the things that I do in my classroom.
He asked a question that really made me think: "If your kids did't have to be there, would they still show up?"  Think about it.
Another great quote from this day was "We want Makers not memorizers, we want Creators not consumers!"  I LOVE IT!
He is also very down to earth!  He signed about million books, and posed for a million pictures! He is also really tall! 
And...he told us not to tell anyone, but he sneezed into his microphone during our session and it was REALLY LOUD!  :)

If you haven't heard of him or his book, I suggest that you go and get it right now. I'll wait!

I really don't want to give too much away because it is that good.
So, if you want to know more, you can find Dave Burgess (and an AMAZING freebie if you sign up for his newsletter) HERE.

If you are still not sure (you are crazy...just kidding), I have another surprise for you!
I am giving away a SIGNED copy of Teach Like a Pirate in the Rafflecoptor below!  Thanks so much for stopping by and Good Luck!

Planet Points: Mini-Anchor Charts!

Hello again!  
Thanks for stopping by for this month's Planet Point!
I want to share with you an idea about anchor charts.
I LOVE anchor charts!  I think that they are the perfect way to make our thinking visible.  I am a staunch believer in making my anchor charts with the kiddos.
That being said, anchor charts take up a lot of wall space.
Sometimes you need a smaller "reminder" chart, or just a chart for one specific idea.
I have found that making mini-anchor charts works perfectly.
I also found that I LOVE to make them on Super Sticky Post-it notes so that I can move them around and stick them anywhere!
This one about making generalizations is stuck to our CAFE menu of reading strategies.
This chart was made when we were writing observation journals about our classroom tadpoles.  Every time we did an observation, I put this chart where the kiddos were doing their writing.  It really helped!

These are the Post-It notes that I used for my mini-anchor charts:

They are 8"x 6" and are the perfect size!  The ones that I have found come in four different colors:
orange, yellow, green, and pink.

I found mine at Meijer, but you can also find them on Amazon!
(What CAN'T you find on Amazon?)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
