Authors, Illustrators, & Characters, oh my!

I love, love, love using notebooks with my Kindergarten students!

It is such a fun, flexible way to capture student learning. 
ALL of my students can be successful - 
and work at their own level. 

In Reader's Workshop we've been focusing on the parts of a book, authors, illustrators, and characters.

Here are some examples of the awesome learning that is going on in our room.
