A number of you in the LYS Nation are now Twitter users.  If you haven’t done so yet, we want you to join us.  To let you see what you are missing, here are the Top 10 LYS Tweets from the week of December 8, 2013.

1. It’s not the grade, it’s the thinking! McFee ES recognizes those who think and stick with it! (By @CabidaCain)

2. Congratulations to LYSer, John Schumacher! He is the new Assistant Superintendent in Johnson City ISD. Who will be next? (By @LYSNation)

3. A Lesson Frame is a powerful instructional tool when properly used. They are just words on a board and extra work when not used in the lesson. (By @blitzkrieg607)

4. Visited 4th Grade math class with 16% jump on common assessment!  Principal, teacher, and student excitement about data made my day! (By @RandyMBrown)

5. Just passed 1,000 PowerWalks for semester. Good data collected.  Great teacher conversations follow.  On our way to our goals. (By @blitzkrieg607)

6. It was nice to be at McDonald Middle School today. Implementing Lesson Framing, Power Zone, and Small Group Purposeful Talk. Keep up the good work. (By @LindaHenrie1)

7. Outstanding visit at Snyder Intermediate School. All teachers in the Power Zone and all Lessons Framed.  Also saw Critical Writing, Recognition, and Purposeful Talk! ! (By @RandyMBrown)

8. I love that the kids are learning to form and justify their own opinions, then use great descriptive language to analyze it! (By @tjadams105) 

9. Disturb the status quo. (By @THS_Mr_Metz)

10. For 2013, The Fundamental 5 (Cain & Laird) is currently the 4th best selling Education Leadership book on Kindle! Thanks, LYS Nation! (By @LYSNation)
