I'm sure you must be thinking I fell off....you know, but I assure you I've been very busy. Actually, busier than I expected. I always was going back to Georgia the second week in October, thanks to Amanda Swerdlow, the CST at Barnwell Elementary, who encouraged her principal, Dr. Norman Sauce...to have me back. They actually booked me the week after I returned from there last spring. In the process, Amanda and Dr. Sauce were responsible for also getting me booked at Dolvin Elementary School and Medlock Bridge Elementary School in the Fulton County Schools. For each of those two schools, I provided my Higher Order Thinking & Text Complexity presentations to K-2 on one day and 3-5 on another day. I feel so grateful for these opportunities and so appreciate them finding value in having me...since students were IN all week, all three schools hired approximately 18 subs per day just to get enough coverage for all teachers to attend the presentations...WOW! That says A LOT! However, I really had high hopes for parking it in front of my computer all the rest of the time, but that just didn't happen. Please don't be mad at me...I'm now more behind on my 3-6 Common Core Reading Bundle than I wanted to be. In fact, I spent over 50 hours IN THE CAR, which means font & border making (which I will debut this week), but here's a sneak peek at some of the borders I made over the last three weeks...I realistically hope to have my 3-6 bundle up by December...ya'all, it is a huge project...thank you for your patience. xo
Anyway, instead of adding 50+ pictures to this post, I created a Smilebox slideshow because I felt like I owed you all an explanation after I've been MIA on this blog for three week, ESPECIALLY since the outpouring of L.O.V.E. you all showed during the surprise TpT sale in the middle of the month...WOW...you all spoil me rotten, and your continued support and positive feedback means the world to me! Truly!
Thank you. XOXO Jen
