Join Two Writing Teachers and other teacher-writers as we share a slice of life every single day in the month of March.
I just returned from Walmart where I was shopping in preparation for family Easter dinners. As I was weaving between carts and customers and employees stocking shelves, and screaming kids, I saw the mother of one of my students.
I stopped to say hello, and in our conversation, she asked me, "So did you threatened them?"
Inside I was doing a happy dance! I started book clubs yesterday, and he was home reading his book club selection...on a day off! This is why book clubs are an important part of my classroom. Student's don't need threats or prizes or points or pizza or competitions or consequences to motivate them to read.
They just need a great book, time to read, and someone to share it with.
