  1. I really like that you break down all the little signs that you look for in your readers. Finding that "just right" place for them can sometimes be tricky, and you are right...that is a strength of yours! Thanks for sharing. I have enjoyed being a fellow Lit Land blogger with you!

  2. The behaviors listed are definitely things I mention to parents during conferences or IAT meetings. I love the form that you created--it's a great way to show parents rather than just "tell" parents. Thank you!
