Happy Holidays from Dr. Sam (& a little holiday treat from my kids)
I have many friends of many faiths and beliefs. I want to wish you all the best in this holiday season. Happy Holidays! May your holidays be filled with joy and wonder, including the joy and wonder reading great books can bring. I’ll resume my blog series about teaching students how to read with prosody after the new year begins. In the meantime, here’s a little holiday treat from my third graders. As you know I am working with their teachers, helping them to implement writing workshop. We were doing a little demonstration of how paragraphs work (main idea details). It was a whole class endeavor. Share the pen. First attempt. Wasn’t expecting much of a result. They surprised me & came up with this funny, amazing little story about Santa. I love it when the kids learn more than you teach. ENJOY!
