December Farley & Looking For Fresh Eyes

Love hooking up with Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade!

And - I am working on a Common Core Reading Workshop pack called "Building S.T.A.R. Readers - Study Think Ask Respond" and I'd love some fresh eyes to look it over and give suggestions/feedback.  If you'd like to be my fresh eyes please comment below, (leaving your email address AND the grade(s) you teach) if you can get me some feedback by Saturday, December 8th. Once the unit is complete I'll send you the final version as a thank you! :)

I'll choose from the commenters and send out the unit by Tuesday. Thanks so much!

Here's a little preview of part of it (Pardon the odd formatting of the pictures...I just can't figure that out on blogger):



  1. If you find that person to take care of all of the menu planning, grocery shopping, and cooking, let me know!!

  2. I am here because of Farley's rule of three but your blog is super cute!! I would love to proofread for you, I teach 3rd grade! My email is
    BTW, if you find someone to menu plan, shop and cook for you, send her my way!!

  3. I would love to check out your Readers Workshop STAR Readers pack. I am currently a first grade teacher and PA certified reading specialist who loves to read current research on reading. Our school has recently gone to a readers workshop approach, and I've been making some rubrics, etc. to use with my students (not even close to selling anything anytime soon). I want some fresh ideas.

  4. I love "Elf." Smiling is my favorite! I owe my husband BIG TIME this summer because he has done the grocery shopping for most of this school year! Your RAK is a good one! I should do that.
    I'd love to look over your unit. I teach K/1 ELA with infused Sc & SS.

  5. I'd love to preview it for you! I'm a first year teaching teaching first grade in Arizona.

  6. I would love to look at your unit! It looks AMAZING!!! I teach reading(only reading) for 65 students K-2. I also am a big fan of your blog!!!

  7. I'd love to proof your unit! If you already have enough volunteers, I understand and will look forward to checking it out in your store! :) I teach 2nd grade.


  8. Wow, the unit looks fantastic so far, Lisa! It looks like you've got a lot of volunteers already, but if you need another I'd be happy to help. I teach 2nd grade so I'm not sure if you might rather have firsties look it over.

    Oh, how I'd love someone to grocery shop and cook at my house! I'd just be happy if the cleaning fairies would come!!

  9. Would love to be your fresh eyes if you still need people!
    I teach 1st grade.

  10. I teach second grade and am a pretty good proofreader...way better than trying to come up with creative ideas myself! I'd love to help.

  14. Those star items are adorable!

    And I don't even want to think about the next three weeks... the shopping aspect alone is stressing me out, and I haven't even thought about wrapping everything! Yikes!

  15. Girlfriend I'll look it over for you! I am big into goal setting in my class. I like how your beautiful brain works. I am going to be doing a blog post about goal setting, so I might wait until your pack is ready and then promote it for you! Let me know. Here is my email, if you want to send your little baby over to me!

  16. Wow, Lisa, your STAR reader pack looks great already! It seems like you have many offers already, but I would certainly love to proofread for you. I'm a gr. 1-5 reading specialist now, but I taught first grade for many years prior to my new position.

    BTW...I love your RAK! What a super way to boost morale at school!
