I am reading "The Book Whisperer". It's been a quick read and I am enjoying it. It solidifies for me that the whole "everyone reads this book I picked out" by the principal is SO wrong. I want to raise hell about it but I'm not sure that will help me or the kids. It is so wrong. I am tempted to photocopy a few key pages of this book and slip them on the principal's desk.
I had to laugh when we were at our set up day...TEN of my kids from last year are on 6th grade honor roll and then the reading specialist says "these kids come to us unprepared from elementary school". Clearly not my kids!!
I'm not sure I will be able to bite my tongue about this book thing for the next six weeks.
I found out our ELA coordinator is retiring and I covet her job big time...except I want to be in the classroom, not behind a desk.
