and this Tomie dePaola post is one of my favorites!
Another of my favorite posts is A Peek Iniside Our Gingerbreadland! I love all things
gingerbread about as much as I love Tomie dePaola books! My kids and I had so much fun
in our little gingerbread world this past December! So much that I did two posts!

My Favorite Graphic Artist
Over the top talented and heart of gold kind, Michelle, from The 3am Teacher
is my oh, so favorite graphic artist! She has made me some of the most original
and creative images based purely on my ramblings! I think I should add mind reader to her
long list of lovely atrributes! She is also the sweetest friend will drop anything (and she is one busy girl!) to help when you need it! I have learned so much from her this year and so appreciate
the tutorials and putting things in
that she does for teachers and bloggers.
Michelle’s blog is a must-read (she’s hysterical!), and I know I am not alone
in my true appreciation of her! Check out her blog by clicking the picture!
I literally squealed when she posted these!
Ginger-Bets! She promises to make a number set, too! (No pressure though, Michelle! hehehe)
I had the privilige of getting a sneak peak at this little treasure while Lisa was in
the final stages of the editing process. Lisa is a prior reading specialist who knows her stuff! This resource is so thoughtfully created and well put together with the Common Core standards in mind.
It includes the original concept of being a S.T.A.R Reader (one who will Study, Think, Ask, and Respond while reading) with original poems, anchor charts, and student awards. She has also included fantastic parent communication letters to keep your parents informed about what each strategy looks like in the classroom and at home. It truly is a fabulous resource to help you
launch or advance your reading workshop to the next level!

I just watched it about 8 more times before posting it.
might have to click on the Watch on YouTube link to view it. It’s worth the extra clicks!)
