    Explaining my "No Hungry Caterpillar Rule" to #edu506 and #edu307 students: There are soo many other books out there. It is well illustrated and a classic...but that means your students have seen it and the book isn't really that good at sequencing, butterfly life cycle, and is void of plot. ...but its really just too many years of teacher prep. It's like the "No Stairway to Heaven" sign that hangs in the Guitar Store in Wayne's World.

    Looking for a an action packed day today.-Early on I had some ideas for the #cmmcab working group that kept festering on my hike yesterday. So did some hacking on Working Group tasks before house woke up.-Dropped kids off at school and checked the six online classes I teach this semester. Dropped in to share my love of Erik B and Rakim (this week doing best hiphop duos of 90s recommendations welcome)-Then it will be a morning full of interviewing Southern Connecticut State University students seeking admission into our College of Education programs to become #k12 teachers.-Will hop back into teacher mode and record some videos for #edu506 where students are getting their roles assigned in our weekly discussions. Then over #edu307 to show students how to use a wiki to add our book reviews. -By lunch I transition to #tech4teens camp a free remote technology camp for middle schoolers. Camp starts at 15:00 so want to finalize lesson plans and hire a student worker to help with the work load.(DM for donation materials all moneys go to getting free computers and training to families in New Haven)-Then after dinner I have to rectify the books as treasurer for East Haddam Little League...little behind on the books.
