Some of Center’s Reading Ambassadors “bookmarked” a classroom door! They spent about two sessions creating the parts before installing it today. What classroom will get “bookmarked” next?

Here is this week’s roundup of literacy links for some quick inspiration, tips, and refreshment:

This week at Harry Potter Club, we did a lot of making. Did YOU find one of our corner bookmarks with a “Read more Harry Potter” slogan? We hope so! We want as many people as possible to read the books!

The High Quality Teacher Share on Making Literacy Toolkits is half over, and I am so proud of teachers’ ideas for and dedication to their toolkits. We have everything from a kindergarten reading toolkit to a fourth grade realistic fiction writing toolkit in forms ranging from sketchbooks to ARC notebooks and binders. Together, they’ve troubleshooted issues and shared ideas. Soon, teachers will start using their toolkits with students, and I can’t wait to hear about how it goes!

After weeks of organizing, brainstorming, and planning, some of the Reading Ambassadors will finally start revealing their projects. One group is surprising a class with a book cover door creation. Can you guess what book this is? Which Center classroom will be “bookmarked” (their trademark!) first?

Kindergarteners had an exciting week. To celebrate the end of their super readers unit, in which they learned about their pattern power, pointer power, picture power, and more, kindergarteners and their teachers came to school dressed as superheroes. Singing their Super Reader theme song to the tune of the original Spiderman show and hearing a story read aloud by Superhero Hutton were just parts of their celebrations. It was a joyful experience that I’m so grateful our youngest readers got to experience. Brava to our amazing kindergarten team!

I’ve been digging into Patterns of Power A LOT lately. And I’m loving it even more than I did last year. Ten minutes a day. Very little prep. Student-centered. Inquiry-based. Most beneficially, it raises students’ language consciousness. They are more aware of their choices as writers and the effects their choices make on their readers. Let me know if you’re interested in exploring POP together.
