And I'm not late, late, late!
That's a nice (and foreign-to-me) feeling. (Often the secretary has to call our classroom a few times before finally asking if I can do the attendance before the kids leave for the day!)
It's July first, and Farley has posted her link up. And even though, it's the first day, there are already almost fifty entries!
Farley has written some rules for this link up... nice rules... so be sure to read before you post (Boy, that sounded teacher-y, didn't it?) Don't worry, they're easy to follow, I promise!
Here' s my currently for July...
And here are the rules...
The "Reads" section refers to listing your all-time favorite Read Aloud and then adding your "go-to" professionl book. Easy, right?
My favorite read aloud book has always been The Cay by Thodore Taylor. I cry when we read the dedication. And then I cry several times along the way. The kids always share amazing things when we assemble in our sharing circle. I put on the twinkly lights and they read and I cry some more!
I Read It, But I Don't Get It by Cris Tovani has lots of great activities and strategies for older kids who are still struggling as readers. There is an activity on purposeful reading in the first chapter that I use every year!
The other request allows lots of people to get comments on the Currently post... and you might make a new BloggyBuddy in the process! And since we all know, nobody chooses words like Farley does... I just borrowed her description...
"I would LOVE for you to look at the 2 in front of your link and then come back and look at the one behind yours... that is 3 in all and I love the #3 ... let's call this the RULE of THREE!
Of course you can comment on as many as you want, BUT if you link up, please at least follow the RULE of THREE."
Yep, that's how Farley does things... with STYLE!
So, link up to Oh Boy Forth Grade with her cute new button above. While you're there, grab the template and remind yourself about the Rule of Three. Then, come back and link up and leave a few comments. It's sort of a "give some/get some" arrangement. How cool is that?
