Welcome to my new blog :)

Hi everyone

Welcome to my new blog :)

Well, this is a very exciting day - my very first blog post on my very own blog :) 

A HUGE thank you to those who have helped and encouraged me to do this -

Carla from Comprehension Connection
(Carla's reading comprehension units of work are fabulous - you should check them out!) Without Carla's encouragement I wouldn't have even thought about blogging, so thanks so much Carla - check out her blog here: 

Misty and Erika from Honey Bunch Blog Design - love your work - thank you - and thank you for your patience with this beginning blogger - love my blog design :)

And big thanks to my special graphic designer on etsy - Iva - for making my clip art sets and avatar...and for just being wonderful, supportive, caring and encouraging.  I use Iva's clip art (custom made) in many of my resources on TPT.    You can check out her work here:

It's going to take a little bit of time for me to learn how to "drive" this blog, so please be patient...It is very exciting, new learning for me.

The focus of my blog will be around the teaching of reading and reading comprehension.  It will include picture book reviews, activities and ideas to support rigorous pedagogy in the teaching of reading.

This is my very first blog post ever, so I hope it works :)
