    I just got the great news today. I have accepted a position at a wonderful school as a reading teacher. I've not taught reading before, and I'm a tad nervous. I will be training this next week on the READ 180 program.

    The first week I would like to do team building activities to create a sense of community in the classes. My classes are blocks of 120 minutes! Any suggestions for activities? I've also been using the web to find things, but I would love anything that some of you have to offer.

    I also think we might be missing some important materials that i need for the program. I'll know for sure by Monday, but do any of you know how I can go about getting these materials? Do I just contact Scholastic? This is all very new and confusing!!!
