18 Oct Celebrate!
We were in schools this week talking with students and teachers who have spent the past few weeks creating a reader’s workshop in their classrooms. We wanted to check in and hear how things were going so we could provide support and problem solve together. What we heard gave us reason to CELEBRATE!
“I love reader’s workshop. It is so much fun to read books that my friends are reading.”
“We have a waiting list for books in our classroom!”
“Reader’s Workshop has taught me that I want to read slower and understand, really understand, what I read.”
“I want to read books that I can read easily so I can understand better – I used to just want to read long, hard books.”
“We had to go on a field trip this week –I was so upset that we had to miss reader’s workshop.”
“I know my students so much better as readers – better than I ever have before.”
“I love that my students are talking about books and authors. There is a buzz in my room around reading.”
It was truly a celebration of reading!
