  2. I love your idea of letting the tabs on the books to remember the craft taught and to point it out to the kids also!
    The author of SkippyJohnJones is from Pennsylvania, and she came to our school. She would love to know the great things you teach with her book!

  3. Great podcast and ideas. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I absolutely love your podcasts! I have a suggestion for the next one. I think it would be helpful to see an example of your modeled writing for that lesson. Like how you said you modeled something for Skippy Jon Jones text wrapping or another craft on chart paper. Your closed closet doors are a perfect place for displaying a visual. I know it's another step in your podcast and you meant for it to be quick and easy. I think it would help me and possibly some others. Just a suggestion.

    Thanks again for all you do. You are helping to make better educators. You really do have such a positive attitude. You should do training on how to boost morale. I am in Hillsborough and it think it would be a wonderful thing!

  5. Kelly, thanks so much. enjoyed these and found them useful--will be returning to check out more along with your site.

  6. Love it!! Love it! Thanks for sharing.

  7. Kelly, you do such an amazing job with these podcasts! Keep them coming! I look forward to the next one!
