Reading Away!

I am truly enjoying Reading Workshop. In fact, when people ask me these days, are you ready for school to be out? In a huge way, no, I am not. I never thought I would say that with this class. Starting out, I was shocked at how low my kids were and however were they going to grow? Now, I just want to keep working with them because I am amazed how far they have come and the great thinking they are doing. Today, one of my boys, was upset with a book because it was a Dr. Suess style book (non-sense and rhyming), but it was in our non-fiction basket. Because we have talked about six different layouts of non-fiction, he was able to determine they were trying to set up a fictional narrative to help him with the non-fiction.
