1. Les Miserable
2. Guiding Readers and Writers in Grades 3-6
Les Mis is my pleasure read of the summer. Read aloud...not so much. I have read it before, but it has been a while, and I am loving it! BTW have you seen the trailer for the new movie??
For professional development, I am diving into this book by Fountas and Pinnell. I am going to be changing my reading instruction next year. I really want to try readers and writers workshop, but I am so nervous. So, basically, I am a sponge while reading this! Any tips and advice you bloggies have about implementing reader's workshop would be GREATLY appreciated!!
Please head over to Oh Boy 4th Grade and check out all of the other linkies!!!
HAPPY 4th EVERYONE!!!
