    Hi Lisa,

    Your website is inspiring! I’m 52 and a new teacher graduate, busy looking for interesting ideas for literacy for my p-2 children next term. I love your integrated units – amazing amount of detail – and am also interested in using/adapting your library session self-behaviour sheets – thank-you!

    Great site Lisa, i have only found it today.. I will spend more time and look further. I love it that people who enjoy sequences and order are happy sharing their skills – Especially useful for those of us who live in the dreamy world of pictures.

      Hi Joanna, thank you!
      I have just finished my first new hybrid unit today (VELS interpersonal and thinking skills, ACARA literature/literacy). It’s a research unit called Landscapes and it’s for Years 5 & 6 and I got the idea from reading Justin D’Ath’s Extreme Adventures series. The kids have to research different landscapes (deserts, rainforests, polar regions etc) and design a brochure advertising extreme adventure holidays there.
      I just need to proof-read it and then I’ll be uploading it…
      I could put it up as is, typos and all, and my ‘online colleagues’ *grin* could proof-read it and give me some feedback?
      Let me know what you think…
