Congratulations on the new addition to your family!
I am a loyal reader of your blog. I love all your ideas and resources! Since I found your website (about a year ago) I have changed many of my teaching philosophies. The way I teach reading and writing is very different now. I am using the workshop approach. I reorganized my library into genre baskets too. It is going really well and I see a big different in the motivation my students have for reading and writing.
I was really glad to see your post this week. I have been spending a lot of time at school this year trying to better my classroom and my teaching. I need to also remember to make a good balance between school and home life.
There was one question I did have for you. You mentioned preparing units ahead of time. Do you have a specific list of reading and writing units that you teach? I am trying to develop a rough draft to save time and would love some insight.
Thank you again for all the dedication and time you put into helping other teachers. Speaking as one teacher, I truly appreciate it!!!
