The Very Busy Spider – Read

If you have been with us for a little while, you might be wondering why we are changing books instead of re-reading our book and focusing on a different comprehension skill. That is normally our method, but this month since we are doing an author study, I have...

Read – From Head to Toe

The book From Head to Toe will always have a special place in my heart. This was Rea's very first favorite book. I checked it out from the library on a whim because it was by Eric Carle (whom I love) and I had never heard of it before. It was an instant hit for her...
