My students are ready to read and write. My class is a mixed gender group of 9 - 10 year olds. My room is alive and the learning is occurring as soon as my students enter their classroom ,and extends far beyond the limits of the school day.
My hope is to add interesting small group literacy resources that will enhance their learning experience with the Lucy Caulkins reading and writing programs.
The units of study build upon collaboration, communication and building a love for reading.
Do you remember getting hooked on a book and having the ability to share that experience with others? Think of the anticipation and excitement you felt waiting for the book, and then reaching the end of the novel, feeling satisfied yet sad, the sadness felt when one is missing a friend. Those experiences and more can be felt by students as they share thoughts and feelings in book clubs.
My students want to share that excitement and joy of devouring books from multiple genres in our classroom through the Lucy Caulkins units of study.
Many of the books on the list incorporate historical fiction ,where the students can mutually develop the love for reading and history to last throughout their lives.
