Page history last edited by Florence McGee 11 years, 7 months ago

the reflective person is the learner...

 

   I have this little book called  Go For It  by Jo Ryan. In it is a picture of this cute furry little fox and the quote is  "Happiness is dreaming dreams, and working to make them come true." I had really believed in the county use of PLACES for sharing and colloboration... so now my dream is that we here at Oldsmar can use this page as a sharing of things that have worked or maybe didn't work..  As I am always telling the kids we learn best from our mistakes.. SO... PLEASE add to this page...  I will start it out... Please intial and date your entry.

 

 

 These were in a handout during one of our reading meetings last year, but thought I'd send them out again. Janie :-)
