If you are visiting my website right now it is probably to check for new additions
or to download some of my tools and resources you have heard me share
in a presentation, workshop, or at your school or district.
There is always a possibility that what you are looking may OR may NOT be found here.
If you do not find what you were looking for please CONTACT ME directly...
and I can most likely send it to you.
If you DO NOT hear back from me soon....RE-CHECK with me again...it could be that I am traveling!!
It is impossible to put all of my things online of course....and there are also many
materials that I do reserve for those numerous schools and districts that I am privileged
to be able to work with directly in their classrooms.
Having those opportunities to confer with
teachers & students in "real world" classrooms allows me to stay "real"
and to keep my literacy tools and resources current and meaningfully useful!
My website is NOT fancy or "high tech" but it is "FREE" and "Real-World"...
It is hopefully a great site for all of my fellow teacher geeks!!!
I LOVE HEARING from you!! Please give me feedback when you can.
For those of you who have not heard about
READING WONDERS.... Just a quick little "endorsement"...
An exciting reading program.....now available from McGraw Hill Education!! This program is NOT a
"remodeled basal program" with new CCSS stickers stuck on the covers...BUT rather a valuable
integrated high quality program "built ON the CCSS" containing high quality texts that are
short reads meant for CLOSE READING and giving teachers and students opportunities
to learn "HOW" to ACT: Access Complex Text!!
As a consulting author on the program, I can proudly tell you that you will LOVE the way it provides the
literature and informational text resources and support that teachers need with both multiple and varied
authentic short reads for appropriate and strategic CLOSE READING instruction as the KEY to unlock
students' abilities to sustain comprehension in appropriately COMPLEX extended authentic texts also
provided. Also specifically designed to meet the needs of ELL students in our classrooms with the new
standards! It is truly the resource that teachers need to successfully implement CCSS...NOT a basal...
A RESOURCE...with the latest and the greatest!!
Check out the Common Core Tool Kit found on the McGraw Hill
Education Site as well... Check out our author videos and resources!
