What event could bring Franki from A Year of Reading, Karen from Talkworthy, Karen from Literate Lives, Katie from Creative Literacy , Stella from My World-Mi Mundo, myself and others under one room tomorrow?
Could it be a sale at Cover to Cover?
The announcement of the Newbery?
Good Guesses but wrong.
We will all be in one room to hear and watch Samantha Bennett , author of That Workshop Book: New Systems and Structures for Classrooms That Read, Write and Think, work in Katie’s second grade class and Karen’s fifth grade class. I am very exciting to have colleagues from three different grade levels that will be attending tomorrow, as well as a student teacher from the building. What a great professional development opportunity that would not be possible without the hard work of the volunteers for The Literacy Connection, including my friend and guru, Carol.
While we won’t all fit in Karen’s and Katie’s classrooms, the rest of us get to watch over close-circuit television, with debriefing sessions in-between.
