Agreed. Read to Self is reading, period. Comprehension activities would be appropriate for strategy groups. I do let students "Stop and jot" while they read if they want to.

I loved a particular style of Speedo flip flops that were...

We just went for a walk and ended up at Starbucks. I drank my first peppermint mocha of the season and it was divine! (I order it with half the pumps of peppermint and chocolate so it's not so sweet.)

I was so, so sick last year.

My feast was like yours-- a few bites of saltines and a few sips of crackers.

I'm a "no case" girl. I love the look of my iPhone, and though I think there are tons of adorable cases out there, none of them work for me. I've bought a couple, but ended up not liking them.

Wow. I used to own a small shop in our town. I don't think I would have made someone buy a broken candle. Hope you like the scent.

I love Anna's Choice Almond Swirls.

Omigosh. It is heavenly.

Definitely get your hair wet before you put on a cap. Conditioner is fine (although that usually makes my cap slip) but water works, too.
