How Do Children Learn to Read?

Here's a picture of my oldest son. He's one of three children. I read to him from the time he was a baby. He was reading before he started school. If I only had one child, I could've been fooled...

Do You Make Money Through Blogging?

Hi everyone. I started my blog in 2009. I've been losing my motivation. I'm leaning toward spending less time blogging and more time on things that will put money in my pocket. I'm going to teach a summer class and maybe try to fit in some reading tutoring this summer.I really love all the like minded people I've met through blogging, but I've been wondering if blogging will ever be a source of income.Would anyone like to share how you are making money through your blog? I feel like I'm…See More

Good Books for Beginning Readers

I share information about teaching reading. One of the places I like to share is at Squidoo. I can create pages with pictures, products, and video links. I can create quizzes and debates. Head on over and join or chime in on my phonics vs. whole language debate.

Hi Michelle, yeah, I don't understand why some people would think that using that way to teach reading works, but if you reason with them, hopefully they will understand.

It is nice to meet you in the virtual way, and maybe we will talk more later on.

Have a good day,

Iulia

Michelle--

Can I just tell you how much I appreciate your kind words? YOU are one of the sweetest, top-notch, class-act, teachers/bloggers out there.

I am SO glad you're here and that we've connected, Michelle, I really am.

Thank you.

Michelle. Thanks so much for your amazing kindness. I can see I have finally found the 'right' place and I'm soooooooooo excited. It's so sweet of you to have already visited my blog and watched the intro video. I am gradually building a stronger platform, but it sits there all by itself...... my mom reads a long and a few other dear friends, but I have NO idea how to get "it" (the blog, my work) out to the wider world. I am really excited about having found this resource and others who are more techno savvy & also willing to hold my hand. A gazillion thanks. I look forward to the group guidance and all suggestions are happily accepted. Have a great weekend.

Michelle--

fyi, I left this message for ning admins:

Hi, there!

Several of my members want to be able to enable a 'signature' for their comments on discussions so that each member doesn't have to go all the way back to the person's profile in order to connect that person to a blog or facebook account.  Is this possible?

Without outsourcing to Like2Link (what happened to that app, anyway--I can't find it on the network level), is there another way we can connect Facebook accounts, Twitter accounts, blogs, and other social media connections to a member?  I don't like that Like2Link is a totally different site, or that other people who are not on our forum can have access to our information.  Do you have a suggestion for us?

And on another note, I've activated Twitter so that members SHOULD be able to 'tweet' from our forum (www.weteachgroup.com) to Twitter, but it's not working. Why? 

Many thanks for your help.
amy

 

let's see if/ how this might help us!

At 1:23pm on January 20, 2011, teachmama--amy said…

WOW! You gals have been busy this morning! I head to the library w/ Owen and Cora, and I come back to tons of new things! Awesome!

 

Happy to do whatever you'd like to make connecting with members easier.  I have a busy afternoon with tutoring two students after I pick up Maddy from school, but I will certainly get to working out things over here by the evening's end. 

 

Thanks for your patience--Thursdays are way busy for me.

Michelle!! Please, please accept my most sincere apologies for misspelling your last name on the last 'we teach' newsletter--I am just sitting down now to work on the 11/21 newsletter and realized two important things :1. that your name is misspelled (ack!) and 2. that I never sent you your gift!!
I"m losing my mind. Please send me your addy asap, and I'll get it out on Monday.

sorry!
