A Need for Reads: Digital Reads for Kids

Posted: July 24, 2010 in Uncategorized

Are you looking for a few good ebooks for kid and teens? I know some of the teachers a Grand View are eager for digital reading resources. As a parent, I’ve been so impressed by the positive attitudes, sense of urgency, and just plain ol’ hard work all of the PK-2nd grade teachers have demonstrated this week during Literacy First training.  To see this group of talented ladies form such a cohesive team with a clear purpose and drive to succeed makes me want to do something embrassing…like run through the halls slapping high-fives, or break into dance spontaneously. Why? Well, first because I’m a goober, but second I work with these awesome people and our students (which includes my kids…of my womb) will be the benefactors of the teachers’ hard work and enthusiasm.

I’m almost this pumped…
