    I just want to say….THANK YOU…for taking the time to post your "Peek At The Week". I know this takes a lot of time and we are very fortunate you are willing to be so giving! P.S. I bought the Writing Units 1 & 2 from you and Deanna Jump. I just LOVE using them with my students. Amber ~ Kindergarten Rocks Blog

    Thank you Amber for taking the time to comment. Sometimes I wonder if people read them… LOL! I hope it helps.

    I am thrilled to hear that our writing units are helpful. We hope to have our 4th one up by the end of the week… Where does all the time go?

    Thank you again for your sweet comment!

    DeeDee…
    I know what you mean about wondering if anyone even reads the posts we share. White I was presenting in Indy, we were on my blog site and I had a new comment. I must have looked as "giddy" as a 4 year old getting a piece of candy. I had to read it right away! HA HA HA I have made it a goal of mine to make at least 3 comments a night before I go to bed. I follow so many amazing blogs that I wish I could comment on all of them. I do appreciate other teacher/bloggers taking the time to share their wondering ideas.

    Hello there,

    It seems like you are a great friend as I turn to your bog when I need motivation to remind me of why I do what I do. I loved the Nov and Dec Poetry pack. I didn't have time to implement the Nov. pack but I have been using the December and my students love it.

    I do have a question, how many HFWs does your class learn in kinder? I know there are all different numbers out there. We use the HFWs in our Awards Reading program which is 37 but a fellow teacher in LA has her kids learn 100. My students are doing well with the 37 but if I introduce more they will probable learn them but I am just not sure. Sometimes just giving them more for the sake of giving them more just doesn't make sense.

    What are your thoughts
    Thank you,
    Pat

      Hi there, We have 54 word wall words. I would say about half of them can be decoded (can, big, sit, it, at, ….). Most of my students seem to master this list by the end of the 3rd quarter. I have a few who are close right now, but I have some who will need everyday of the school year to get there.

      I hope that helps.

    I got your poetry stations for December and love, love love them! Can't seem to get the "Gingerbread Man" tune out of my head. I can't wait to purchase the rest. Going to my Principal to see if she will consider getting them for all of us n K! Love your work! You have given me tons of inspiration!
