Wait! This is really important: small moments from Kindergarten #SOL21

“Wait! This is really important!”

In hushed tones I let him know we needed to transition from Reading Workshop to snack and recess. The window is short. The struggle is real. We’re five.

“No! This is so important! It can’t wait!”

“Go ahead. I can tell it is.”

“Everyone! Today I read for the very first time ALL BY MYSELF!” The room erupted with cheers.

“And how did that feel?”

“Amazing!” Knuckle bumps ensued.

“What book was it, buddy?”

“Knuffle Bunny!”

I’m not crying, you’re crying.

Thanks for wondering and wandering a bit with me today. And many thanks to the crew atย Two Writing Teachers, and the extended SOL community, for giving us the time, space, and encouragement to live the writerly life here every Tuesday throughout the year and daily during the month of March.

  1. How wonderful to hear this from one of your little readers, Christie. My little Sierra is 4 and looking forward to K next year. She is quite the lover of books and knows stories by heart. I think she is impressed with her learning as your little Kinder is. If only Sierra can have a teacher like you to inspire her forward. So far, she has been blessed with teachers she likes.


  2. Oh, just the best. I remember my daughter didn’t tell me right away when she first read at school. She said it was because she was afraid I wouldn’t read to her any more. Ruth, thereisnosuchthingasagodforsakentown.blogspot.com
