An Awesome Book by Dallas Clayton: Free online

What it is:  Dallas Clayton created An Awesome Book for his son.  The book is about the idea of dreaming BIG and never giving up.  He decided to self publish and worked hard to spread the love of reading the world over.  Since then, Clayton has offered his book free online (lucky us!) and started a foundation to give away one book for every copy of An Awesome Book he sells. How to integrate An Awesome Book into the classroom: An Awesome Book is an awesome book about dreaming big dreams.  It is a great book that encourages kids to believe in themselves and in those fantastic dreams that they have.  An Awesome Book is wonderful for reading as a whole class on an interactive whiteboard or projector-connected computer.  You could also set up An Awesome Book on classroom computers for students to read through independently.  Fantastic! When students are finished reading, ask them to create their own awesome books with their big dreams. Tips: To learn more about An Awesome Book and it’s creator, Dallas Clayton, check out the Very Awesome World Website. Please leave a comment and share how you are using An Awesome Book  your classroom!

Three day weekends are a gift straight from heaven!  I could not be more thrilled that we are headed into one of those.  I have been on turbo speed for the past few months and I need a reason to take a forced break- this seems like the perfect excuse to do just that!

Working to open a school in August is hard work, I continue to be amazed at the learning community that is being pulled together and I am excited to see it all unfold!

This week:

I hope you had a meaningful week full of many learning gifts.  To those who finished school this week-congratulations! For those who have some time yet- keep doing what is best for kids!

Happy weekend!

I love your Searching For da Vinci resource! It’s exactly what I was thinking when I wrote my first blog post on da Vinci. The Bloom’s Taxonomy visuals are great, too! I’d like to hear more about what you are doing with it. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Peggy, as you will remember your post was the inspiration for this line of thought!
