  5. Cindy D says:

    Why not have one more session on the appendices in “Literacy Beginnings?” Fountas & Pinnell included really helpful information on a variety of things including: ideas for inquiry projects, teaching procedures for shared reading, interactive writing, interactive read aloud and tons more!

    Can’t wait for the beginning of the blog party!

    • V. Levin says:

      Sounds like a great idea! I didn’t have the book at the time we were selecting chapters so we weren’t sure if it would be appropriate or not. Now that I have the book I think it is definitely a MUST!
      Thanks for joining in!
