September 2012

September finds me with the school year well underway. I am getting to know my students, their accomplishments, challenges, goals, and though I always feel that I begin the year prepared, I find that I am constantly on the hunt for new (or tried and true) resources that will be the "just right fit" for each of my students. I was so excited to find Pinterest. What a plethora of resources - not only for my classroom, but for my home as well. I especially love the anchor charts and have been busy every morning before school copying those that I have pinned. My students, I find, are also excited about the visual displays in the classroom as they hurry in to read each and every word on each new chart. So -  Check out Pinterest, and then try not to become addicted - I bet you can't pin just one!

             Welcome to our new Website! We are so excited with our new look and have so many plans to make this your “Go-To” place for literacy.

            To launch our Blog I would like to introduce you to a wonderful resource (maybe some of you have ventured there already). The Positive Engagement Project at is not to be missed! I have found so many ideas that I use on a daily basis in my own classroom that I want to be sure all of you also know about this wonderful Website. In fact, if you were to walk into my classroom one of the first things that you would see are the “Learning Bricks” that I have posted on my classroom windows. My students and I continually refer to those posters throughout our day.

           And, we would love to hear from you. Share your ideas and your questions. We are here to help.
