"My goal is that in June my students will walk away asking more questions than when they arrived at my door. My plan is to engage my constant questioners with complex text and have them dig deeper by developing their own questions and discussing them with others.  Here’s hoping this year will be more like a pleasant dream than a nightmare!"

Reading, writing, listening to, performing, and memorizing favorites are just a few of the entry points for experiencing poetry in the classroom. Nancie Atwell tells us that poetry can be about anything; surprise us, make us think, help us remember what matters, connect heart and mind to heart and mind; tap our senses and light our imaginations; tell stories; craft feelings as art; and “open our eyes to the poems that hide around us.” #nationalpoetrymonth   #poetry   #poetrymonth

Read our post from Patsy Blue, a Reading Intervention teacher at Robbins Elementary and President of the Moore County Reading Association:

"As educators know and researchers (e.g., William Nagy, Judith Scott) have shown, a large part of comprehension depends upon vocabulary. But how do we help students develop a deep knowledge of words if they have limited experiences and exposure to the English language? One activity that seems to work in my teaching situation is the vocabulary “field trip.” #fieldtrip   #vocabulary
