Happy Friday!!

I'm super excited!!
Yes, today is Friday. AAAAAAhhhhhh.

But, I also received a totally cool email today. The title of the email "Good News".  It was from the school board head of reading-language arts.  She went on to tell me I was selected to serve on the county's Reading Curriculum Adoption Committee.

Wow-zers, I am psyched!!
What an opportunity!
The first step is a 2 day meeting to see the various curriculum's the publishers are offering. Then the committee narrows those selections down to 2 choices, which are sent to each school for teacher vote.  Ideally this will be fairly completed by Spring Break so an order can be placed and teachers can get their teacher editions BEFORE we let out for summer.

I'm thrilled to know that the plan is to purchase a curriculum that has a prek component.  This would really help the transition from prek to K.

Well that's my news.
What would you look for in a curriculum? I'd love to hear your thoughts :)


  1. Congratulations!!! :) That is a BIG deal!

  2. How exciting! Congratulations! :) The PreK component is ESPECIALLY exciting! What would I love to see? Well, for one... a scope and sequence of skills expected to be mastered in the year. Suggestions for differentiation. Connections to writing. Authentic text suggestions. The like. :)

    Fun in PreK-1

  3. That is awesome that you were chosen to be on the committee. I enjoy being on different district committees especially when it involves new curriculum! :)

    I just found your blog and am happy to be your newest follower!
