Literacy Milestone: Texting

Links I Shared on Twitter this Week: #NationalPoetryMonth + #FreedomOfSpeech + #testing

TwitterLinksHere are highlights from the links that I shared on Twitter this week @JensBookPage. It was a bit of a light week for links (perhaps because I'm still catching up after back to back travel and houseguests), but I do have links relating to book lists, baseball, the Cybils Awards, Beverly Cleary, National Poetry Month, accelerated reader, play, testing, common core, teaching, and ebooks.
