Our first grade team has been using "The Phonics Dance" for a couple of years now. We were so excited when we were able to have Ginny Dowd come to our school last Monday for a professional development day. She has so many great ideas! She is so full of energy and we really learned a lot from her. Our first grade team was also able to go to her "Beyond The Phonics Dance" conference last Saturday. She had a ton of great ideas on Vocabulary and Comprehension. Here is a picture of Ginny and I. She had her magic wand and sprinkles on hand for the pic!

Have a great rest of the week!
