At an elementary school chess tournament. T-minus 7 days til I host an 8YO birthday party. Elementary teachers are grossly, vastly, horrifically underpaid.

These are the books that seem to be on everyone’s Must Read list! I love and David Liben’s Know Better, Do Better because it is SUPER accessible, and it has a great chapter on supporting struggling readers in grades 3+.

Passing the day at an elementary school chess tournament (‘cause my life is lit 🔥). Running through my head: “Why don’t you just give him the king?!? Give it to him.” If you haven’t seen SNL’s Bobby Knight-styled chess coach... you’re welcome.
