    Awesome! Your co-workers are lucky to have you as a resource! I would love to have a training that I actually could use in my classroom! You should have video taped it to post. Thanks for the vocabulary freebie. I just started tutoring 3rd-5th graders in the morning that are struggling to meet benchmarks. This is really going to help them to understand and make meaning of the text.
