Back to School Back to School

So this time of year, every year, the words "Back to School" are everywhere.  All I hear in my head is Adam Sandler singing in Billy Madison:

Sorry I can't help it!  It just makes me LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!! 

Anywho, as any teacher will tell you, as much as we get to enjoy the "summer off" we are constantly working just not necessarily in the confines of our classroom.  This week I have had the privilege to participate in Kagan training.  If you are unfamiliar with this check it out!!!  I cannot remember having this much fun in a Professional Development session!!  There are so many structures it is almost overwhelming!  The course I am in is 5 days - 8:30 to 4:00.  This makes for some very long days and some extremely mushy brain!!!  However, this being said, I have come home every night, jumped on Pinterest and Google looking for more ideas!!  I am very excited to implement these structures and procedures in my classroom.  Once I have got this going, I will share pictures!!!!  If you have any experiences that you would like to share, please do!!!!!
