Learning Link, 101

We tend to hear about schools that are failing our children...but what about the many educators who are succeeding?

I teach Music in two  elementary schools where many of the classrooms are packed with books, vivid learning materials, and lively learning. 

Here's a picture of just what that looks like...it doesn't happen to be in either of my schools, but it looks just like our classrooms.  (There are other great posts on this "Moving at the Speed of Creativity" blog, as well.)

  BTW, if you love reading and would like to have more ideas about teaching literacy, the two books mentioned at the end of this link are great resources.
