    Greetings Mr. Deer. I love your use of different strategies, and how you encourage the students to make connections. The “Ohhhh Moments” are the most exciting moments of the activities. When you say, “Picture this,” I am a visual learner! When you love what you do, it makes a world of difference. Thanks for sharing!!
