Enjoying the Schoolhouse Expo!

Though it makes for some crazy days, I really enjoy the Schoolhouse Expo.  My fingers have been flying taking notes and at one point today my little one asked me if I was talking to my friend because I was audibly agreeing with the speaker about some point.  Little One is no stranger to talking to people on Skype so she thought I was having a two way conversation.  She can't wrap her head around the fact that I can hear them but they can't hear me.  Thankfully she was pretty good today about keeping herself occupied so I could take in most of the sessions.

There were so many great sessions today!  I really enjoyed Susan Wise Bauer's session on teaching writing.  Though the session was geared towards teaching writing at the highschool level, I still gleaned things from it to use with little one now.  Got lots of great ideas to use with Little One in Marie Rippel's session on teaching spelling and also in Carol Barnier's session on learning styles.  Such great speakers!

My brain is rather addled trying to take it all in and I'm looking forward to going over the notes and handouts later to get more from them.  I'd love to write more about it but sleep is calling and tomorrow's another busy day.

That's what's on my mind tonight.
