Move Your Bus! {Book Study}

Hey Y'all!

I hope you're all doing marvelous. I'm about 5 days (or sleeps, as I like to count 'em) away from meeting my new students and I couldn't be more excited. I've been go-go-going like crazy trying to cross everything off my to-do list to get ready for them. Today was our first official day back so of course I had to add about 8 things to my list. I'm getting there, just like I'm sure you're getting there. It will all come together, as it always does!

Anyways, I'm posting to invite you to join me and Kacie at Second Grade Sizzle in reading and discussing Move Your Bus! by THE Ron Clark. This is Mr. Clark's 4th book. I've read part of it and it is incredible. There hasn't been a page that something has stuck with me or I haven't said "Yup!" with. I'm so excited to share this book and discuss with other educators.

We are starting the Book Study on  Monday September 7th and are looking for other teachers who want to join us in starting our weeks motivated and refreshed with #moveyourbusmondays!

If you're a blogger and are interested in hosting a week we'd love for your to link up with us! You can click {HERE} to fill out the information in the spreadsheet and we will e-mail you once we've filled all the slots and are ready to rock and roll!

You don't have to be a blogger to join us though! We want to get as many people involved as possible because this book is seriously amazing! So please join us even if you don't want to host a chapter! And invite your teacher buddies! We will have about 12 weeks worth of discussions which are sure to fill you with tons of joy and ideas!

I'll bring you more details as the start date approaches. I'm sure it will be here in the blink of an eye.

If you need to still purchase the book, you can get it {HERE.

I'm wishing you the happiest of Back To School Seasons and I hope you'll join us in reading this exciting and motivating book!

Lots of love,

Periscope Teachers Survey Tag!

Hey Friends!

I've been spending some time brainstorming different things I could do on Periscope. Some of my favorite scopes that I've watched are the more random, just fun, get to know the person scopes. Like Sheila Jane's What in My Purse Scope! I grew up in the age of MySpace when doing little "About Me" surveys when you were bored were all the rage. I thought it would be kind of fun to mix the two and do a All About Me/Teacher Survey Tag! So below is the image I created for the tag. Feel free to use it in your blog or on your Instagram account! The questions are below. They are just random questions I thought of that sometimes you like to know about your friends. Feel free to comment below with any suggestions of questions to be added. If this is a success, I would be willing to write more questions for a second survey. Well, I hope you'll join in, do the survey on a SCOPE, and tag some of your favorite teachers to do the survey too! If you the teacher survey tag please tag me on Instagram (@ericameisler) so I can watch! :)
