Friendly Reads are my jam! Basically they are a way to motivate students to read more novels and fall in love with it! You find two kiddos that have something in common! Then, you give them both the same book. They read it together and you give them random times to be able to talk about the book. You can even let them create a book project when they are done reading to add to engagement! It works because students are motivated to read when they are reading together, they get to read new genres they might like, and they find enjoyment when reading with friends! You can read more about it in the blog post in @friendlyteacher profile! . . . . . . http://www.thefriendlyteacher.com/2017/03/the-power-of-a-friendly-read.html

This month is always just an outpour of love. And you know what?! I LOVE it! I love, love! And I want to take this opportunity to cyber-shout to my hubby! He is the absolute calm to my storm!

Is anyone having a tough teaching day? It happens. And I’ve been there more times than I can count.

I always get through it. And you will, too. Whether it’s personal, professional, or totally out of control, YOU GOT THIS! I am here for you!
