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?”
I’m not crying, you’re crying.
Thanks for wondering and wandering a bit with me today. And many thanks to the crew at 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.
