My First Currently

I love the link up with the Currently, it is so fun. This is my first one. Here goes...
This is my all time favourite read aloud.

And I have read it so many times, I usually read it around Halloween cause it has kinda spooky qualities, but my kids year after year, class after class LOVE it and always want to hear it over and over again. The best part is when the wolves actually do come out of the walls,  and it's ALLLLLLLLLL OVER. 

And what can I say about Debbie Miller
After reading her book, my classroom practice changed for the better. I re-read her book each year just to refresh the great ideas. She has been a great influence on me as a teacher and a reader. Hope you have time to link up with Currently.


  1. I'm so glad I found another groovy teacher!! Love your blog! We almost used this paper for my new blog design! Your design is precious!

    I'm going to have to check out The Wolves in the Wall! Looks great!

    Peace, Love, and First Grade

  2. I'm watching The Bachelorette now, too! Haha. There's nothing like waking up on your own instead of that awful alarm clock... Hope you're enjoying your summer!
