This book has so many examples and ideas that you can use in your classroom tomorrow! I was very impressed with the both the quality of the content, as well as the large appendix filled with templates, graphic organizers, and creative pages and ideas waiting to be used in a variety of classrooms. I cannot wait to go through this book again because I know I'll find a whole other slew of goodies the second time through. Thanks!
