My goals are set as the new school year arrives quickly:
*Words are everywhere and it is important to show relationships throughout the day.
*Building a community at the start of the year is crucial
*Knowing our students as readers/writers is mandatory.
*Students need choice in their reading and need time for reading.
*In order to write, you must be a reader
I started looking through past wonders that I have used in addition to searching for new ones. Once again with the new grade level/common core pull down I was able to choose several wonders to begin the school year.
