Dyane Smokorowski talks about Virtual Valentines, the Awesome Squiggles Project, and a fun trip with teachers to the San Diego Zoo this summer. Now is the time to sign up for Virtual Valentines where you'll be paired with a classroom in another part of the world. You'll exchange Valentines and learn geography! Then, the simple Awesome Squiggles Project gives students a mindful collaborative art project to do during the standardized testing season that will help them relax and refocus. Finally, Dyane (also know as Mrs. Smoke) will share with us a fun trip that she and 40 teachers will be taking to the San Diego Zoo this summer.
