   A must for teachers
As a 5th-grade teacher, I have never been so inspired or excited about a book. Thanks for the opportunity to pen your first book, "The Whole Nine Yards: Writing, Speaking and Reading Strategies for Success." They are Not only brilliant at organizing the materials and the anchor charts, but the way they are written and arranged makes the task of creating lesson plans seem so easy. It has been a busy weekend for me reading and learning while re-planning my two writing and reading lessons I am about to start on Monday. I would be ready, and have a clue, just by using these books, he said. Thanks for the support!!!!!!!! Blair, who returns to school Monday, said: "I'm not worried about the weather.

   This is limited to K-8.
It looks like it will be useful to teachers of elementary and middle school students.

   Better than Lucy.
Great book, easy to use and great value for a busy teacher. The content of the English lessons is immediately applicable to 5th graders, I assure you of this.

   Best book on teaching writing
I have a very, very soft spot for teaching writing. It seems exhausting and stressful at times, Hubach said. Then I came across this amazing book by Jennifer Serravallo. In this book, we cover the stages of writing that are relevant to your classroom. This book is great for any classroom, no matter the level of instruction. The book is a great introduction to the book, providing lots of pictures for support. It's great to have a book like this out there for anyone who loves or hates reading. Thanks for the resource.

I purchased this a few months back, and just had a chance to dig into it over the summer months. This is an invaluable resource that every teacher should have in their classroom. A must have. It's just that they call it quits."

   ... description of this book say that it is mainly useful for grades K-8
Nowhere in the book says it is primarily useful for grades K-8. I'm a high school teacher and can adapt some of the strategies, but would have preferred to save my $40 since it's geared toward elementary students, he said.
