  1. Is anyone else loving Google Jamboard? Google Jamboard is a tool that can be used to support learning in fully online and/or a personalized pedagogical approach. One could model this for teachers by having them use Jamboard at your first staff meeting of the new year. Just asking them something simple like, "add your name to the first slide to show you are present at the meeting." At the end of the meeting, you could ask them to list one thing they learned at the meeting on another slide. For students, I would use this with my ELA class and instead of having a drawing board, I
  2. If she is not certified, she will have problems getting jobs in international schools k-12. It is possible in a college or an ESL job. Some international schools will hire a traveling spouse to do work depending on their qualifications. I'd suggest you reach out to a few of the agencies like Search Associates and put a profile up there.
  3. I set mine up with 3 tabs: My Reading Life - for independent reading Our Reading Life - for book clubs and read alouds Toolkit - for charts, mini posters or reference sheets and we glue them in In the front we keep the Reading Inventory and Reading Log
  4. The Cult of pedagogy has a great article on 9 ways to help with online learning. In case your school is going online this fall, this article is a great place to start. https://www.cultofpedagogy.com/9-ways-online-teaching
  5. I attended the Teachers College Reading and Writing Workshop in June and July this year. It is without a doubt one of the best institutes reading teachers or administrators can attend. In one of my small groups was this lady named Hannah. She was great to talk to and I learned a lot from her and the other participants. Hannah is an amazing Sketchnote artist. She make these images and share them with the group. It was so impressive. If you are are on Twitter, she is a MUST follow! https://twitter.com/SketchnoteUSA
  6. I have used it and I like it. I have been using it during e-Learning. It works well for Zoom or Google Meet and sharing screens.
  7. Here is a video on how to help students create a digital notebook using Google Keep.
  8. Celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Rainbow Pride Flag with the very first picture book to tell its remarkable and inspiring history! In this deeply moving and empowering true story, young readers will trace the life of the Gay Pride Flag, from its beginnings in 1978 with social activist Harvey Milk and designer Gilbert Baker to its spanning of the globe and its role in today's world. Award-winning author Rob Sanders's stirring text, and acclaimed illustrator Steven Salerno's evocative images, combine to tell this remarkable - and undertold - story. A story of love, hope, equality, and pri
  9. The heartwarming true story of two penguins who create a nontraditional family is narrated by award-winning actor Neil Patrick Harris in this book and CD package. At the penguin house at the Central Park Zoo, two penguins named Roy and Silo were a little bit different from the others. But their desire for a family was the same. And with the help of a kindly zookeeper, Roy and Silo got the chance to welcome a baby penguin of their very own. Releasing in time for the tenth anniversary of And Tango Makes Three, this book and CD edition features narration by renowned actor Neil Patrick H
  10. Shana Frazin and Katy Wischow passionately believe in the need to help students develop strong talk skills across the school day, in every subject, to prepare them for their academic lives and lives as active citizens outside of school. Using a unique "cycle" for talk that's similar to the writing process (generating, choosing, developing, acting, and reflecting), they name the predictable things we do most times we engage in a conversation, and show us how we can teach into those parts. Shana and Katy provide practical strategies for teaching four important purposes for talk that exist b
  11. The Boy & the Bindi Vivek Shraya (Author) Rajni Perera (Illustrator) In this beautiful children's picture book by Vivek Shraya, author of the acclaimed God Loves Hair, a five-year-old South Asian boy becomes fascinated with his mother's bindi, the red dot commonly worn by Hindu women to indicate the point at which creation begins, and wishes to have one of his own. Rather than chastise her son, she agrees to it, and teaches him about its cultural significance, allowing the boy to discover the magic of the bindi, which in turn gives him permission to be more fully himself. Be
  12. Jeannine Atkins (Author) Venantius Pinto (Illustrator) A village girl in India inspires the women around her to save their beloved forest. One day Aani is resting against her favorite tree when she hears the unfamiliar roar of trucks. She alerts the village women, the eldest of whom says the sounds are made by men from the city who have come to cut down the trees. The women explain to the cutters that their trees provide the villagers with food and fuel; are home to animals; and prevent erosion. But the men are heedless. As the cutters move closer, Aani acts with quiet, instinctive h
  13. Number the Stars by Lois Lowry is an amazing book. This Hyperdoc was is a great way to learn the novel. https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1iqXN0xun0t48Vj5dy01f4QBOtHb1mq25kddyQQfscYU/edit?usp=sharing
  14. If you have a NY State Teaching license, you will find a job easy. Many international schools are looking for teachers with some IB experience. You can easily take a few online and you should be fine. Most places give a housing allowance and you use it how you want. If you wife works, it is double for many places. Some school actually provide the house or apartment and they take into account who is traveling with you. Pay is good for many areas. The Middle East and Asia tend to be higher pay than EU. I'd suggest joining both The International Educator and Search Associates. You will
