ReallyGoodStuff RT @justinmcook: Ive heard good things about the graphic novel Skim. Has anyone used it in school? #TeachChat -9:43 PM Nov 14th, 2012

ktvee@IUeled09 Can you suggest one for 4-5 grade? #teachchat -9:35 PM Nov 14th, 2012

ReallyGoodStuff@msmoreau_guid I would agree with you! It’s a way of life in the classroom vs. a topic to be taught #TeachChat -9:32 PM Nov 14th, 2012


IUeled09@msmoreau_guid Great point! Lots of great books that deal with bullying that can be used as a Read/Think Aloud. #teachchat -9:32 PM Nov 14th, 2012
