Today is the first day of the Lexile Conference. I couldn't really leave the booth to go to the keynotes, but from what I heard - they were absolutely awesome. There were attendees that mentioned the writing component of Lexile. Yes ladies and gentlemen, it's not just about the reading levels!
I saw Debbie Bohanan, and surprise to me -a lot of people from Lake City, SC. Lake City is where I started my teaching career. I'm still in the exhibit hall though. Dangerous place to be. Why? Well there are about seventeen vendors. Scholastic though has this huge booth set up and they are selling Harry Potter books at $2 a copy!! Well, not just Harry Potter - but all paperback books are now $2! I bought 25 books and 2 make your book kits. Dangerous! I might have to go back there. I don't need to eat. Maybe if I spend all my money on books, I won't have the money to eat.
Brandon's at a session right now. I'll have to get his input on it and share.
