Friday Recap: Math Apps, Free PD, and More!

Happy Friday!  I hope you all had a wonderful week as many of you got back into the swing of things at school.  This week was a busy one with the final preparations for the Reform Symposium Virtual Conference.  I look forward to “seeing” you all there!  Here is a recap of what I was doing when I wasn’t blogging here: The Reform Symposium Virtual Conference is tomorrow (January 8, 2011).  Did I mention that it is FREE?  We have incredible speakers, sessions, and prizes to win.  It just doesn’t get much better than PD in your jammies. Pull the String for Better Education– a post about pushing, pulling and education reform. Math Girl Addition House– a super great app to help girls practice math facts and learn to love math while doing it.  Very cute! Math Girl Number Garden– another super great app for math fact practice that syncs with the Math Girl Addition House.  How cool is that? Have a wonderful weekend!

Holy. Cow.  School has started in full force!  I absolutely love having kids back in the building. It feels alive again, kids bring an energy that can’t be matched.   If you are a teacher, you know that there is an enormous amount of work that goes into starting a year.  It’s a good thing that the kids bring energy, because mine is depleted!  I blame it on the constant stream of school related dreams that happen at the beginning of the school year.  It’s like I never leave that place!  I hope that those of you who are beginning a new year are off to a great start.

Chalkstar to rockstar Anastasis Academy Podcast

I get a lot of questions about Anastasis Academy.  People usually start off with jaws dropped and some disbelief in their eyes, “wait a minute, YOU started a school?”  After some convincing that this AMAZINGNESS really does exist, the litany of questions begin.  How did you do it?  Where did the money come from?  What is different about your school?  In less than 6 months you started the school, seriously?  Recently @michellek107 and I shared the story of Anastasis Academy with @bennettscience on a brand new show called Chalkstar to Rockstar.  Check out this great new show here!
