Guildway has started this weekly series earlier this year, and over the course of almost two months, our team has decided to change our approach in selecting the Twitter posts that will be featured in our end of the week list. The first part of this post contains our top Twitter posts and Guildway blog posts. This week’s list contains a program that mails a book every month to any child from birth to 5 years old, tips for teaching critical thinking skills, social and emotional learning (SEL) resources from Common Sense, tools for creating timelines, essential tools to help you become a better teacher, and so much more.
