This past week I finally feel like I hit my stride in kindergarten. Stations were running, books at independent reading levels were being read, we celebrated the end of a unit that we completed *together in person*. The only bummer? It’s *March*. In the Before, I’d be feeling this way in October. I know I’m supposed to “give myself grace” and “let go of previous expectations”, but as excited as I was for our accomplishment, I’d be lying if I didn’t say I also felt like a failure. What a bizarre year.
Here is this week’s roundup of literacy links if you’re looking for some quick inspiration, tips, and refreshment:
- Teachers College Saturday Reunion is March 20th! It’s a day of FREE PD sessions on Zoom with the brilliant staff developers at Teachers College about all things literacy. I can’t wait!
- This webinar from Dr. Nell Duke on “Early Readers Dos and Don’ts” gave me a lot to think about!
- The “Resources” page from Dr. Jan Richardson’s site has SO MANY gems.
- Mental health break – Call me “ink drinker” from now on.
