Wow! Your ideas are so inspirational and will definitely create life-long learners and readers in your classroom! I love the ideas about celebrating even small leaps in students’ success with both reading and writing; this is ever so important to keep them engaged and interested, as well as become proud of their work. In addition, you provide a great home-school connection for parents to stay up-to-date on what their child has learned, or succeeded in, and again instills a sense of pride within them. Another point I wanted to touch on was “Teacher-Swap” or student-led discussions or readings. This type of teaching really puts the learning in students’ hands and allows them to gain so much more out of the reading or writing experience through their own unique presentation or reading. Thank you for all of the great ideas; I will definitely utilize these in my own classroom!
