Friday the 13th .... kinda has a negative reputation, huh!?! 
...why not have some Professional Development Workshops on this day?! 
What a great way to add a positive spin onto the date!
My wonderful team will be sharing with the Second Grade teachers in our district...
Our Topic:
Vocabulary Strategies & Activities 
to Help Grow Your Students
I asked these wonderful ladies if they minded that we post our shares on this page and they were gracious in the undertaking...Here's some of our presentation shares for you to use as well.
The links should be active!

Feel free to download our google slide presentation to share with others as well!

Below is the padlet wall of the shares in the links from the presentation slide.
Please consider adding something that you use to help
increase the vocabulary with your students!

Hello All,
  As the Learning Coach of our school, I was asked to put together some of the technology tools I use to share with my colleagues during our January 5th Professional Development Day. I thought it might be useful to create a page for those shares to be located for future reference.  If you have some things you share with your team mates, please comment below :)
Thanks for all you do!
