    BTL Ep. 009 Parking Lot Podcast - Punch Party & Cotsen Conference

    BTL Ep. 009 Parking Lot Podcast - Punch Party & Cotsen Conference

    We interrupt our regular series about reading identities to bring you this PARKING LOT PODCAST!

    Today we are sharing all about our past two Saturdays... Last Saturday we had our Phonics Punch Party! You can hear all the fun and excitement we had with our colleagues punching out our cards for phonics! This past Saturday we attend the 14th Annual Cotsen Conference! We share some of our big takeaways from our big day in Long Beach.

    We love our little “parking lot podcasts” because they are just little snippets into some exciting events between the ladies and it’s just casual and having a good time! Wonder why we call them parking lot podcasts? Because we ACTUALLY record some or most of it on location usually in the ... parking lot!

    Tune in next Tuesday -
    Our Fall Series is all about Reading Identities. Our first episode is about our own readerly lives as children and into adulthood. #TuneinTuesday (hoepfully every other Tuesday) as we interview educators about their readerly lives!

A very good listen!

Such an informative podcast for educators or anyone involved with literacy programs! Love how each host offers some best practices and give a personal connection by sharing their experiences. It’s an easy listen, not too long, and definitely has charm. Give this pod a try!
