I am overwhelmed with all the support and followers in the last 24 hours!  I would like to thank Diane at Teaching with Moxie for showcasing my Blog Goal for 2013.  With your sweet gesture I have already doubled my followers!  You all have shown how supportive and grateful we are of each other and our ideas.  Thank you so much!

To show my gratitude I am going to work on some freebies this weekend!  I am also putting my new Runaway Ralph Unit on sale, 20% off for my 20+ new followers, for today and tomorrow!

Last night I finally completed my Runaway Ralph Unit.  We started the book before break and I was creating the mini-unit a day prior to teaching it, nothing like last minute planning.  I created this unit for partner or group activities.  Collaborating is a skill my students need to work on, they struggle with sharing ideas and staying on task.  These can be used for a whole class reading, literature circles, or guided reading groups.  Here is a preview of the Mini-Unit:

Thank you again!  Now to work on one of my personal goals I am off to the gym!

  3. I found you via Diane as well. I know how it feels to see thousands of followers on other sites and wonder if that many people will ever be the slightest bit interested in what you have to say. Love your blog, and you have a new follower in me :)

  5. Hi Jessica!

    Glad to see things are going great! I go back to school on Monday (heavy sigh). Megan at "I Teach. What's Your Superpower?" featured my post that mentioned you today. I was pleasantly surprised to see how many people were encourage by it. I hope Megan's post will inspire even more people to visit you.
