Tell All Tuesday: Two Truths and a Lie

I am linking up with Jayme from Teach Talk Inspire and Diana from My Day in K today for their first Tell All Tuesday Link Up! This week we are getting to know other teachers and bloggers with a great beginning of the school year game: "Two Truths and a Lie!" 




If you haven't played "Two Truths and a Lie" before here is how it works: give three "facts" about yourself making two of them true and one of them untrue. 

Let's see if you can guess my fib:

  1. I spent a week in Walt Disney World one summer to attend a conference all about Kagan structures. We looked at different intelligences and practicing structures. The structures help students become engaged in curriculum while learning to collaborate with their peers. 
  2. I looped from 2nd Grade to 3rd Grade with my students. I love looping and think that it is very beneficial. Looping with a class can increase learning time because the class can spend less time learning routines at the beginning of the second school year and students gain a sense of stability and constancy.  
  3. I still keep in touch with my favorite elementary school teacher from 4th Grade. Her passion for teaching was so radiating that she inspired me to become a teacher myself.   
Thanks for stopping by and spending a little time getting to know me! Leave a comment below to tell me which number you think is my fib. I'll be sharing which one was the lie by Friday. Don't forget to also stop by others in this link up to get to know them too!

  1. Hey, Jackie! Yours are tough. I'm going to guess that #2 is the lie. I'd love for you to head over to my blog and take a guess at my lie!

  4. Hi! We are going to guess that number 1 is just something you would like to do…and that maybe you haven't actually has the opportunity to attend. We hope you have though- that's really cool!

    We are looking forward to stopping back by on Friday to find out which of these is not true!

    Best wishes,
    Ashley and Brooklynn

  5. Yours are all a little tricky. I am going to go with #1. Being stuck in a training while at Disney World...I guess you would have your evenings to enjoy the park. Great to "meet" you.

  6. Oh WOW!! Jackie your "facts" are tough! I am guessing #2 is your fib! If #1 is true, it would be so hard to focus on a training while at Disney. Even if I do LOVE Kagan, I would want to be on the rides.
