Being FLIPPED doesn't mean that we leave behind all the classics and beautiful words that have been written in the past. Rather, it means that we are privileged to share those words with kids who've never heard them before! By using a medium that kids are familiar with, we can make the words come alive, make them sing and soar. How exciting is that? This is a great time to be a teacher, and I'm so glad I'm part of it. Whether it's Shakespeare or Jane Austen, Kathryn Anne Porter or Mark Twain, this promises to be fun, fast, and fabulous - can you feel it?!?
