Hi Katie! How are you? It was great to hear from you. I hope you had a nice summer as well. I actually spent most of my weekends hanging out in Cape May New Jersey. I love it there. My sister and I went for a little getaway last weekend. How about you? How was your summer.
Tell me a little about your new literacy program; I am interested. Our district just purchased Wilson Fundations and F. and Pinnel for our word study program. Wilson is very scripted; there are pros and cons as with most programs. It is only one component of our overall balanced literacy program.
I love first grade. It is fun to watch the growth that occurs in grade one; they are like little sponges... taking everything in and with such excitement! It's great!
