Overheard at School





Finally!! It is time for us to adopt a new math program!! We've had the same one for 10 years. Over the last few weeks we have been listening to presentations by several publishing houses about their wonderful programs. I really liked the Harcourt Program we saw today, but the presenter tickled me with with his earnestness and enthusiasm. At one point he said, in an attempt to empress us with the web based components of the series,

"The online test, where you can take the test online, is online." Bless his heart.

Awww--he must have been nervous. HA I remember the publishing house people. Their stuff was so fun to look through.

I'd say it is a good think he's promoting a math program not English, heeheehee

ROFL! We just adopted a new Reading Series. We had the last one for six years. It was the only one I knew~I started teaching when they adopted it. I do not like our new Reading Series! I have some major work to do this summer to get it all organized with a lot of supplemental material! We will use it for 6 years. On a good note~the board approved a Social Studies Program and they will be purchasing our K and 1st Social Studies Weekly! Whew~I can use that school money for something else next year! I love K Social Studies Weekly!
