My students and I are *really* enjoying Reader's Workshop.
I am using Kim Adsit's AWESOME units.
Check out unit 1 here:
One of the lessons is about being a book lover. I made a huge deal about "joining the Book Lovers Club". We talked about what a big decision it was, how book lovers treat books, how much they love reading, and all the perks that come with a membership. : )
The first day students joined the club they got a special stamp on their hand.
The following day we decided to make our club "official" by creating membership cards. : )
