A.L.L.’s Reading Institute in Dilley, Texas is off to a great start!
Participants are reflecting on themselves as readers as they begin to explore the different components of Balanced Literacy including interactive read alouds, establishing reading partnerships and the essentials and procedures of shared and guided reading.
They are exploring what it means to be a reader while building their own reading community by sharing their favorite adult book and class read aloud. The teachers are reading The One And Only Ivan and recording their thinking and responses to the text in their reading logs.
The buzz is that those attending are enjoying the presenters and looking forward to rolling out some exciting new ideas!!
