I just joined this site tonight but already I have downloaded many of your free lessons without realizing till now that most have been from you! I just want to say thank you for offering these and for a free download as it has gave me much confidence for my upcoming student teaching in a 5th grade classroom! I cannot wait to share with the students and my observing teacher and advisor!
On  January 5, 2014Laura Candler answered:
