What are you reading and where are you? Our transition from a reading workshop mini lesson to independent reading guides our sharing circle each day. I have one reader fixated on the Captain Awesome series who replies with his answer, tossing in the chapter he is on too. Every time he shares the chapter he is on, I remember the day our reading conference was about the difference between pages and chapters. He then adds, "Did you order number 9 yet?" I replied, "no but let's do that today during reading." Then I realize I purchased 7 and 8, maybe even 6 so maybe I should check the public library. Together we find a list of books in the series. He giggles at each upcoming title. Watching him anticipate the new book coming, giggle, and be interested is pure joy.
Thank you Two Writing Teachers for not only bringing together a community of writers but inviting us to push the pencil daily and nudge our writerly life.
