Charlotte's Web

I used to read it every year in the spring to my first graders and then watch the movie. They loved it. No time for that now with everything else required. I miss doing that!

thoughts on cords

You can dress them up or down depending on the shoes & type of shirt or sweater! I love mine in the winter even with the whiff-whiff sound some of them make.

6 reading groups

I usually pair up with the teacher next door. If I have 3 or 4 on a certain level and she only has 1 or 2 on that same level (or close to it), I'll take her kids and vice versa. Every other day I...

O.d.d.

I totally agree that prevention is the key. I had this experience a few years ago---only I was never told until after he was seriously out of control. I learned what would set him off, what his body...
