Hi Mrs. Ranney,

ReplyDeleteI am a new visitor to your blog and am new to the world of blogging. Ella suggested I visit your blog.

I was very impressed with your Birthday pictograph.

Having the children ask the questions is an effective way to develop their understandings.

Keep up the great work,

Ms. Tieppo
