I hope all of you had a great weekend. I enjoyed my day of learning at the University of Southern Maine with my colleagues from the Southern Maine Writing project. It was nice to have time to reflect on my teaching practice as I am doing a teacher research project on pre-writing strategies with some of the students in my Title I program. One book that I would like to highlight is a book that I have been reading out loud to my boys.
The Way of the Warrior by Chris Bradford
This book about a journey that one boy makes to become a warrior.
For students to read independently I would recommend grade 6 and above. Lots of twists and turns in this book. Xavier was able to use visualizing a lot as he listened to this text. Great Story!
