Literacy Life

Reading, Writing and the pursuit of thinner thighs

If you build the space, they will read!

It’s been a whole month of school and I am thrilled with the start of this year. I have a great class, wonderful peers and a supportive administration. I decided to write about environment – again! As I conference with readers during independent reading, I sometimes have to pinch myself. It’s so pleasing to gaze out across the room and watch engaged readers. I am such a believer that if you create an environment that supports readers and their reading, they will read. I encourage you to think about how you can create that space(s) in your classroom.













It’s such a pleasure to know that any given day, there will be hundreds of words absorbed.
