I stumbled across an amazing blog this summer, Lessons With Coffee, and was intrigued by these SLANT boxes Jameson was organizing. This is the low down on how it works... you sign up and you will receive two email addresses at the beginning of the month and you reach out and start chatting! There are a few rules that have been set! You have to follow the theme, have a handmade item, a note and must be at least a ten dollar value.
Let me tell you about my experience with SLANT so far. I met Ana from Mrs. Bentin's Blackboard and she actually inspired me to start my blog. My partner from this month was Sarah from Kovescence of the Mind. (Her box is below... the theme was 12 days of Christmas!) SLANT gives you that chance to meet other educators, correspond on a non-work level and you get the chance to send little tokens of appreciation to fellow teachers!
