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 August 31, 2014.

1. Putting an RTI label on a child doesn’t “fix” them. Differentiated instruction and progress monitoring is what helps the student. (By @vhssaldana)

2. Today’s Quote:  “For teachers and students alike, there is no education like that which arises out of adversity.” (By @DrRichAllen)

3. Teachers, when someone walks into your room the natural tendency is too talk more. Let your students do the talking to really impress. (By @justintarte)

4. You can’t learn to love books if you never get to read books. Period. (By @KyleneBeers)

5. “16, 17, 18, 21… This counting is hard.” Got to love Kindergarten math. Renewed respect for Kindergarten teachers! (By @LYSNation)

6. Phrases you are unlikely to hear: “I won the lottery!” “I was struck by lightning yesterday.” “A policymaker visited my classroom.” (By @BluntEducator)

7. I visited 24 classrooms today. Today was a good day. (By @HoustonSuper)

8. I think people are confusing pedagogy with curriculum. Curriculum determines what you teach. Pedagogy is how you teach. (By @iamDrWill)

9. There is no one right way to teach, but there are a lot of bad ways. (By @BluntEducator)

10. “I woke up very early today and I am still awake…” Amazing but true facts that Kindergarten students will share with you. (By @LYSNation)

Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
