That was a relief!!
Another great thing is happening in my class in the next picture. My kids LOVE to read. They can't wait to get finished with assigned work so they can get a book to read. I bought some new Mo Willems books about the pigeon as well as a few more Elephant and Piggie books last week. It didn't take long for the children to spot them, and before I knew it, a whole group had gathered on the carpet to read the books. I couldn't resist taking a picture -- it looks like a commercial for Mo Willems. I love it!! I love how the Daily 5 procedure teaches them to sit in one spot and read to themselves. And I am so thankful for fabulous authors who keep writing books that help me grow kids who love to read.
If we didn't have to assess and assess and write report cards and progress reports and go to meetings, it would be even better!!
