My Kind of Day: Slice of Life MM Day #6

Today was just perfect!

In the morning, I was up reading some slices, dying to get mine going but I knew I had to wait for my day to officially kick in.

By 9 I was out in the cold, warming my car and on the Garden State Parkway, headed to watch and document a class at Highland Falls Intermediate School.  Paul, 7th grade Science and Kristen, Tech/Literacy were collaborating on a lesson inspired by a workshop I led during our 2nd Science team session.  All afternoon this duo worked together, creating a lesson around Peter Elbow’s Believing and Doubting strategy.  I loved what each brought to the conversation and today I watched them move seamlessly from table to table.  A work of art, a call for more collaboration everywhere.

How fortunate that both teachers were free as the class ended to reflect with me on their goals and plans for more of this work.  What a total pleasure and I have it a lll on tape!

 

Back in my car, still cold, but we got to see some sun, I was back home for a quick lunch with Tuvia and then I was off to shop.  I’ve make it my tradition to shop before a trip.  Now I don’t need any new clothes, but… I managed to fill a few Chico’s bags without any trouble and Tuvia just smiled as I  added them to my wardrobe, already bursting at the seams.

It was fun!!!!
