    Hi DeeDee, I was wondering how you decide the order that you teach your letters. I have seen so many different ways and I am at a lost as to which is the best way. Thank you for the Peek at my Week posts! I love them and everything you do.

    • Deedee August 18 at 4:17 am

      Hi! When Deanna and I set out to map the letters for Guiding Readers, we put a lot of thought into the path of motion of each of these letters. We also looked at what experts recommended and went from there. I hope that makes sense.

    Hi Deedee,

    I read in one of your blogs about the students filling in their own behavior chart for the day. Is that one that you made, or did you get it from somewhere? I like that idea of them filling it in, because it makes them more aware of how they act at school, and helps them reflect on the day.

    Hello
    I love your classroom. I was wondering what are the self portrait in? Are they frames?

    • Deedee September 4 at 2:12 pm

      YES! I got them at the dollar store… Super cheap frames:)

    Hi there! Is your lesson plan for full day kindergarten? For some reason when I click on the image it won’t open anything or download ๐Ÿ™ Is there another way to access it? I see that you start literacy stations and writers workshop on the first week. How do you go about introducing your stations and the procedures, and are you actually getting them rotating the first week? I usually don’t start for several weeks into school so I’d love to know how you start it so early on! Also, I purchased your writing units and I am so excited to start using them soon to drive my writing instruction with my class this year ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Deedee September 4 at 2:08 pm

      Goodness! Sorry! I just fixed the link for you!

      Here is a blog post that will give you a great start towards station introduction!

    Hi Deedee,
    I when I click on your lesson plan image it won’t open ๐Ÿ™
    Can you please send it to me? [email protected]
    Thank you!
