Read This!

STOPIsn’t it great when we know someone so well that when we read something we immediately think of them and have to share?  Recently a friend forwarded a Blog post to me with the caption “Read This!” Click here to read the post.  This same morning I referred a friend to a FREE Webinar on a topic I knew she was passionate about.  This exchange made me think of literacy in our classrooms.  You know you are doing something right as a teacher when you see this practice of book recommendations happening.

Recently the Blog Turn and Talk took on this topic: Click Here

I love how intentional the teacher mentions teaching this skill and the graphic that was posted:

    I have a collection of index cards in a recipe box. We go through the stages (much like the ones mentioned above) on how to write a recommendation to order to collect our favorite reads. The kiddos can then go through these recommendations during their independent choosing of books. I used the book Guiding Readers and Writers by Fountas and Pinnell, following their suggestions on how to make this part of my classroom routine.
