Hey, Rachel! I love your "Fighting For Our Earth" article! Thank you for sharing it! It will work perfectly for one of my fluency reads. I'm not sure if you are aware of a few typos in it. On the first line it says "for the what the" and on the second page, "we can only get them only." There are some periods instead of commas in several places too. I'm thinking it was probably hard to tell them apart with the font you used. I hope you don't mind me pointing these out to you. I'd really like to use your article with my 2nd graders. Thank you so much!
Thank you so much for pointing out the typos! Sometimes I re-read it so many times that I start to miss the obvious ones. and yes, the commas and periods can be easily confused. The one font I used for the text doesn't even have commas, so I had to change to a different font to add them in and sometimes the sizing doesn't look right. They are fixed now and ready for re-downloading!! Thanks again, I really do appreciate it! Wish I could hire a full time editor because once I'm done making stuff, the last thing I want to do is go back through it with a fine-tooth comb! haha
