I have just returned from The Write to Learn conference and I was fortunate to hear Dr.Timothy Rasinski speak on phonics and vocabulary instruction. Now, he could probably talk about the weather and I would be thoroughly engaged because he is just a gifted speaker. Despite laughing and singing my way through his presentation, I also took away some validation and inspiration.
Validation: The practices I follow in Word Explorer are in line with what research says works! Yay!
Inspiration: How about a St Patrick's Day Making Words.
Other St. Patrick's Day themed products
Luck of the Irish Word Sorts and Write the Room (there is one for each short vowel family)
