Monday Must Reads: Volume 48

Happy Monday! I haven't spent as much time on twitter lately as usual, so I know I have missed out on some awesome tweets. But, I decided to go through my twitter likes and see what was worth sharing anyway. And, wow, you guys did not disappoint! Sorry to anyone whose awesomeness I missed during my twitter absence, I will try to make up for it later!

I hope you enjoy this collection of Monday Must Reads and can find a useful idea or two or three to use in your classroom!
