  1. I put last year’s book project books in this year’s fvr library, so my students have been looking forward to writing their own for months now. We’ll start after spring break, I can’t wait! This is the first year where I’ve understood what you’ve always said about sitting back and enjoying the last months of the school year and I think it’s because of the invisibles and the goodwill and sense of community they brought to the classroom.

    That’s what is so great about this way of teaching. During the year, with this spatial curriculum (the star), we can always remind them during the hard parts of the year that they will be doing activities in the spring based on what we did earlier in the year that they will really enjoy.

    Honestly, there is no reason we should teach for ten months a year when we can get away with only teaching for seven or eight months. Plus, if we play the WCTG every Friday and give FCR to start each class, if you do the math, we end up actually teaching (minus April and May, and all the Fridays, and the ten minutes to start each class) – actually teaching – about 60% less than we do in a normal year.

    That right there is one very good reason to do the Invisibles!

    I’m so thankful for you Carly, because you get it. Greg gets it. It’s a bit of a slog to learn it, but the Invisibles system works in very cool ways. This time, though, with this book, I’m making videos.
