  1. Thanks for the very timely, relevant and helpful links this week. I fell down the internet rabbit hole exploring this morning and let my dog steal the leftover bacon off the kitchen table! The reading workshop documents are especially helpful to me right now as I am in the process of making my own, along with interest surveys for the beginning of the year.
