Huge Thank You!

I really want to thank everyone who gave their time to help out poor little me and give some information about their guided reading lessons.  My goal by the end of the year is to get an established routine in place to build for next year, and to incorporate the Daily 5 into my literacy lessons.  I have the book thanks to my principal (who is loaning me her personal copy!) and hopefully will start reading that pretty soon.  Hard to find time to read with a 2 year old running around!  (Not to mention what I bring home from school!)  I can't help but feel like my district is playing catch up to everyone else with all the new programs and neat literacy ideas I see on blogs and pinterest.  Oh well...can't change that but I can change in my classroom.  But again, thanks for all the wonderful ideas you gave :)

Also, a big thank you to Stacy at 2nd Grade Paradise for giving me the Favorite Follower Award.  Awwww :)  If you don't follow Stacy, what's wrong with you!  Haha...her blog is awesome, and not to mention she's a fellow 2nd grade teacher, AND lives about 3 hours from me.  So by order of me, you need to check out her blog.  Trust me, you'll be happy you did :)

So, I'm supposed to pick two followers to pass this along to.  Wow...that's a tough one because I am so thankful for all of those who waste take time to read my pitiful ramblings every so often. But again, I'm very thankful for all of them!  So, here goes nothing!

Bonnie has an awesome blog and leaves the nicest comments!  I love that she has personalized her own blog (I love the photos!).  She's got some great freebies over at her site, and she's 1 follower away from 100....so go help a girl out!

These two ladies just simply rock.  They leave such sweet and encouraging comments.  Again, if you have not checked out their blog, what on earth are you waiting for??  

Okay, that's enough stalling for one night.  I've got a guided reading book to get back to and papers to grade, and a two year old to get ready for bed....*sigh*  Where is osmosis when you need it (I need it for these books...maybe I'll sleep with them under my pillow????   right.)


  1. Wow you are so sweet! I just love your blog and I feel like I need to catch up on some of your posts! Seriously thanks though...made my day! :)
