As I was packing up the car last night for our week in Maroa-Forsyth, I noticed something was definitely missing from our “stuff”. The saving grace to some workshop participants to get them through the day. That’s right…the beloved candy basket. I think we left it with the wonderful teachers at Thomasboro Elementary School. These teachers ROCKED! We spent two days with them last week and can honestly say they cranked out more Notebook files than any other group of teachers with whom we have ever held a Make and Take. They are SO prepared for the beginning of school. We helped teachers make lunch count slides, behavior management tools, classroom management tools, incentives, as well as a myriad of vocabulary lessons and interactive templates. HOLY SMOKES…they were on FIRE!
So…Thomasboro…Did we leave our chocolate basket in your lab? Because I can’t find it anywhere. And if you DO have it…please feel free to keep the leftover chocolate. But could you give the basket to JR for delivery to Oakland?
This missing piece of gear, prompted a quick pitstop on my way to meet Mom this morning. At Wal-Mart, I grabbed a medium sized plastic bowl along with Hershey Chocolate Nuggets, Hershey Kisses, and Lifesavers for our participants today. (Don’t worry, I paid for them.)
And quite frankly after listening to me blabber about proper SMARTBoard integration for 2 hours…they NEEDED it…BADLY!
