International Literacy Association's Reading Today

Saturday, March 8, 2014

My free close reading lesson is on Teachers Pay Teachers!  I used this lesson with two of my reading fourth grade and one fifth grade group.  I was even observed by my Language Arts Coordinator during one of my group's sessions.  It was a huge success!

If you would like to use it, go to TPT and look up Maria LaPlaca Bohrer.  It's free!!!

I must give my daughter, Erica Bohrer, a TPT professional seller for setting me up on the site.  I couldn't have done it without her.  She is amazing!

Book Launch at the Lindenhurst Memorial Library Today

Sofia's Stoop Story: 18th Street, Brooklyn's first book signing at the Lindenhurst Memorial Library was a huge success. (Despite technical difficulties.)  I was touched to see so many people attend. Former students who are adults now, current students, colleagues, friends, parents, former neighbors, and even my former Language Arts Coordinator, Chris Nagle, came all the way from Larchmont!  Thank you to all who attended.  I am blessed to know so many wonderful people.  And a GREAT big thank you to Robby for my beautiful roses!  And another HUGE thank you to my publisher's entire family for selling the books!  Thank you Jude, Francine, Jude, Dominick, and Anna!!!
