This summer I attended the I Teach 2nd! conference in Las Vegas. I was able to attend this amazing conference through the wonderful, generous donors on Donors Choose. If you ever have an opportunity to attend a conference, I would highly recommend attending this conference hosted by the Staff Development for Educators. Some conferences are ok, and you pick up a tip here or there so you don’t count it as a total loss… this conference…A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.! Every session was FILLED with amazing ideas to implement in my classroom.
This was the first time I heard of Janiel Wastaff and I am SO glad I did! I LOVED her ideas for teaching writing and spelling. Especially her word chunking wall. Janiel has even wrote a book series called “Stella Writes” to show kids how to do informative, narrative and opinion writing. My friend Melissa won the books & poster set in Vegas at the conference. After checking them out and falling in love with them, the rest of us 2nd grade teachers bought them to use in our classrooms. Click the link below to get your set! You’ll love them!

I will be attending the conference again this summer! I cannot wait and have a countdown in my phone 🙂 I hope that you’ll be able to join me! You will not regret it and will definitely walk away with new ways to enhance your teaching! In case you need more convincing, here’s a few snaps of my amazing experience!
