  6. Hi! Please accept our invitation to visit booth 1739 at EdExpo in Atlanta! We would love to demo The Reading Game, a learn to read game for beginning and struggling readers by the author of Wordly Wise. While it is for K and 1st Grade levels, it is very helpful with kids who are challenged and builds confidence in reading. More information can be found at www.thereadinggame.com. I hope to meet you in Atlanta!

  7. Hi, Kayla! I couldn't find an email address for you, but wanted to thank you for your article on EdSurge about redesigning your classroom. My co-teacher and I wanted to redesign our classrooms after reading it. An unfortunate incident at the school over the weekend, gave us the perfect opportunity. You can read my blogpost about it at http://rowdykids.blogspot.com/2015/12/when-life-hands-you-lemons-redesign.html. We love it and so do our kids! Thank you so much!
