About Leslie

Leslie is obsessed with knitting, and when possible, perfection in her knitting. All stripey socks must match exactly and all lace must be blocked severely. She has major love for all of her viewers/readers and hopes to keep blogging and podcasting for years to come.

    What is cute is that when I saw the episode title “I Want My Hat Back” and Laura spoke about the hat she was knitting for Hank I thought that was why the title was what it was. Then she did the book review and told us about the bear looking for his hat. Laura will need to read Hank the book when she returns the hat to the store. I laughed when I was trying to substitute Hank into the role of the bear and Laura as the rabbit who has the hat. Great episode. Hope SSK planning goes well.

    Loved hearing about the nail stickers. And felt strangely connected to you, Laura, when you were discussing PBIS. We are on year 4 in our middle school with PBIS and it was just approved for our elementary schools this year and they are in year 1.

    I bet the kids loved your nails! 🙂

    I just ordered the I Want My Hat Back. I can hardly wait to share it with my students as we are working on inference. I also may use it to teach point of view. I laughed out loud when Leslie was talking about the fish-too funny!!
