I am going to be delving into this super awesome book:
Talking, Drawing, Writing is an EXCELLENT book that the my grade level read the year before I joined the Kindergarten team. But we've been talking a lot since Common Core was implemented this year. This book will definitely help with creating purposeful and engaging lessons that focus on talking (or discussing as CC says), drawing, and writing. I am so excited! I'm planning on posting about each chapter and maybe even offering freebies all summer long. There are 9 chapters in the book which is perfect for the summer.
