Have a paw-some summer (2015)!

It has been a paw-some school year! 

  • Neighbor girl completed 7th Grade this week. Go, Neighbor Girl! 
We'll be back in the fall for sure with The Write Chat, and possibly with a few updates this summer. For now, we are going to enjoy our lives offline and maybe run in the yard a bit. 

Have a happy summer, friend!

Thank you for reading and sharing,

Katrina's Word of the Week.

Sunday, May 31, 2015

Katrina is ELATED when she receives treats. Word of the Week with Guest Courtney Sheinmel (5/31/2015): #KidLitWow

We are ELATED to have the paw-riffic Courtney Sheinmel here to introduce the final Word of the Week for this school year. Can you believe it? We made it (40 words;40 videos and 30+ guests) since September of 2014)!  We must give a shout-out to our organizer, editor and all-around assistant, Cool Mom, for all of her hard work on assembling the videos.   
This is a bittersweet week for us, as our young author has moved on to other projects. Therefore, we will not return with Word of the Week videos next school year. At least, it isn't in the plans for us as of right now. Thank you for your paw-some support of this fantastic literacy initiative. We have enjoyed working with you all! 

Now back to this important week... Courtney, our guest, and author of the Stella Batts series for young readers, is joined by her friend, Brody, to introduce the word elated to us.
Thank you, Courtney and Brody for introducing this week's Word of the Week: ELATED

Katrina has received ACCOLADES. Word of the Week with Guest Cece Bell (5/25/2015): #KidLitWow

We are thrilled to have the paw-riffic Cece Bell here to introduce the Word of the Week.
 Neighbor Girl was lucky enough to meet Ms. Bell at the Lititz Teen & Kid Literature Festival 2014. Neighbor Girl bought El Deafo that day and finished reading it before the festival was over. Yes, she loved it! We even have a video of her and Erik of This Kid Reviews Books perusing El Deafo in their downtime.
