Thanks for taking a peek into our wonderfilled world. I know I am a blogging rookie, but I am loving the whole idea of blogging! Not only can the families with whom I work can get a close up look into their child's day, but I can also share ideas with other teachers. I want to tell them to please feel free to grab whatever ideas you can. I believe teachers should constantly be on the lookout for ideas to help kiddos love learning. Teachers, we are all in this together...helping the next generation of leaders be the best they can be!!
I put a lot of emphasis every day on the importance of time spent with books in the hands of my kids. Research tells us that the value of the time spent reading authentic literature is immeasurable! I want to share one of my favorite parts of my classroom. The place my kids love to read...and even "fight" over is our bathtub! Rub a dub dub...Read a book in the tub! I even have kids that want to come after school to read in the tub!! :) I found this old tub about 15 years ago, painted it red and filled it with pillows. It is a comfy, cozy, and inviting place to cuddle up with a book! OOPS! Don't get the book wet!! :)
