Teaching By Example

Sometimes you will walk into my room during reading workshop and instead of meeting with small groups, I will be reading.  This is an intentional choice.

I know that instructional time is limited and I need to take advantage of every minute.  However, I also know that I might be the only adult my students see reading.  My students need models.  I can’t just tell them I read – they need to see me reading!

Sometimes you will walk into my room during reading workshop and I will be reading my own book.  I am teaching.  I am teaching by example.
