You're baaaaack!!!! :)
I discovered your blogs last fall. They provided a constant source of inspiration in my teaching! Over the summer, I went through and literally read every one of your blogs- even your really old ones! :)
I just wanted to let you know what a huge impact you have made on my classroom. I teach 1st grade in White House, TN (right up the road from you!). Even though you teach the older students, I've been able to adapt many of the ideas down to first grade level.
I purchased Lucy Calkin's Units of Primary Study over the summer, and I LOVE doing writer's workshop with my students. This year in my classroom, I'm adding more learning hands-on activities (less textbooks!), the workshop method, and lots more individual conferencing.
I love that you discuss your favorite teaching gurus in your posts. Barnes and Noble and Amazon have become great friends of mine recently!
I look forward to your posts this year.
