I know those of you who live in Florida have heard of CPALMS, but have you used it? This is such an excellent resource and it is only getting better. I have been part of a team of teachers realigning the resources to the Common Core standards, all summer. This week some of us were invited to a retreat in St. Petersburg and we spent the day training and reviewing resources. You should see the hotel and surrounding area, these guys really know how to treat a girl!
Friday will be an exciting day as iCPALMS will be launched, so if you haven't made your free account on the website yet, make sure you do this. It is a free resource and you will have access to thousands of items made by teachers just like us. You can be assured that the resources are dependable and accurate, since teachers (like me) are reviewing them for approval to be published. You can go to www.cpalms.org to sign up or you can click the sun at the top of my post.
During some of our down time in training, I had to do some blog stalking. The teacher behind me tapped me on the shoulder and asked me what blog I was looking at because of course, she is a blog stalker too. The teacher next to her confessed to being a blog stalker, so I told them not only am I a stalker, but I blog too. One of them knew my blog, so now I feel so famous, LOL.
I will keep updating everyone on the changes to come with the CPALMS website, so be on the lookout.
