I love September. School has started, the weather is starting to cool off, and so many of my favorite things are back: football, jeans and sweaters, changing leaves, apples, pumpkins and all sorts of spicy fall goodness.
September 5 – Be Late for Something Day
I intended to get this calendar finished and posted last week, but didn’t. So I’ll just pretend that I was celebrating “Be Late for Something Day” a few days early.
September 6 – Read a Book Day
A day hardly seems like enough. Shouldn’t it be “Read a Book Month” or “Read a Book Year”?
September 10 – Swap Ideas Day
Another excuse to spend all day on Twitter…
September 19 – International Talk Like a Pirate Day
Given the popularity of the fantastic book “Teach Like a Pirate” by Dave Burgess, I have a feeling this day will be especially fun in for educators in the Twitter and blog world… Argh!
September 30 – Last Day of Self-Improvement Month
Self-Improvement Month seems appropriate for September. Many people make resolutions and start working on personal goals for New Years in January, but for teachers, students and anyone else with a connection to education, September also marks a new beginning: a chance to establish new routines, to start learning something new, and to make some positive changes. Self-improvement, here we come!
