Passion Meme

These kids are toasting at the beginning of our publishing party. We soon left, went to music and hoped parents, administrators, and support staff would arrive. We didn't know who would come?!?!?!
This is one of my little girls leaving a message on another student's comment sheet. The students walked around the room, in and out of the crowd, and read other student's books. They left comments, positive and kind, about the books.
This student wrote a question on each and every comment sheet!
I had 11 parents show their support!
My reading recovery teacher came and my k-2 teacher!
Principal and assistant principal!
It was a full house, we had the greatest time ever!!!!

Jen Barney memed me a month or so ago about my teaching passion. Today I captured a few of my cherubs on film so I have a picture to show you. Sorry it took so long! My passion is creating readers and writers. My students truly believe that they are authors, that their words matter. I truly believe it too!

I am so happy for you and your kiddos!!! Isn't it wonderful to see them grow into amazing writers?!?!?!

How fun! Did they love reading the comments?

How are things going? What's new in Reading Workshop??? I'm going to start inferring character traits and lessons in fictional books next week, I think. Then moving on to synthesis...should be interesting!

I absolutely love this idea! It's brilliant! We have a celebration of learning coming up in mid April. I think it would be so cool for my students to walk around when all the exhibits are set up and comment on the work before the parents come in the evening! Wow, I'm so excited.
