Gift of Reading Blog Hop Stop #15

Welcome to Reading Toward the Stars! You have arrived at  

At each blog stop, you will be gathering Reading gifts and freebies.  In each post you will find a picture of a snowman with a letter on it. Collect all of the letters to solve the mystery quote to enter the giveaway. Record all of the letters on your recording sheet and follow each blog along the way so that you can enter the amazing giveaway at the end!

The hop is set up as a loop, so you may start anywhere along the hop, but if you would like to start at the beginning you may go to A Day In The Life of A Title I Teacher's blog.  This is also where you will go after you finish the hop to enter the giveaway!!

Each year I find it so important to help students become better readers.  Without reading, they are unable to accomplish so many tasks in life.  As a classroom teacher, I received so many gifts from the kids, but as the reading specialist, I receive so few.  But, I don't want or need gifts from the kids because my gift is how much they have grown as readers throughout the year! 

So, my gift to you is a set of Christmas character traits cards.  These can be used as part of a literacy station or with a small group to help students draw conclusions about a character.  I hope you can use them and enjoy them in your classroom!  Click {here} or on the picture below to grab them from my TPT storeAfter the blog hop is over, it will become a paid item!  They are now $2 in my store!

My secret letter is...
