Today, this book took on another role for me. I used it with third graders. We read it and talked about what it means. Kids wrote responses to it. On their own, several came up with the parallel to any type of learning. As we talked further and thought about ourselves as readers, the connections started coming.
Next Step? I think we're going to write an innovation called "Read On!" I can't wait to read what they create!
And then, I plan to connect it to the old song, "You'll Never Walk Alone" from the musical Carousel by Rodgers and Hammerstein. I can't wait to find out where this journey takes us!.
