Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know...long time no blog. I am beginning my literacy task force reading by the poolside (isn't it great to be an educator? and a big thanks to the Brown's who have an amazing pool and are so generous). As I was reading, I am constantly thinking of what I'll be doing in my classroom in the fall. Do other people find Reading and Writing Workshop taking over their mind and allowing them to embrace more planning for the future? Or am I just obsessed?
You all (whoever reads this) have always been so encouraging and have great ideas...thought I'd throw out a question. Does anyone have great songbooks they use in the beginning of the year with their class? For new readers, I have second grade...and will have 3 identified students who most likely are non-readers or minimal...Looking for all great ideas to incorporate! Thanks in advance!
