Hello there! I'm glad you're here!

Literacy is my passion.
Hello! I’m Carla, and welcome to my site! My goal with this site is to share teaching tips for all areas of literacy including phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and writing for grades K-8. I love sharing resources with teachers, and it makes me happy to help take a little off the overflowing platters of teacher duties. I hope you’ll find my site helpful and my resources worthy of using with your students.

Here is what teachers are saying...
