Boy was it a cold start back after winter break. I can take a few days of this weather, but I'm just about over it. Of course the cold did not slow us down in class.

I am thrilled with the response to this little WTW series. Though I want to stress, you do not have to USE Words Their Way to meet the needs of your students. You just need to match the level of speller to the correct stage. Just throwing that out there!
