Workshops about strategies

I have been to 4 FABULOUS workshops this week:

Phonics strategies/Fluency strategies/Vocabulary Strategies/Reading comprehension strategies

I am going to post what I learned and the many wonderful ideas from these workshops over the next week so stay tuned for some great information! ūüôā

Heather Wible, who is with the Alabama Reading Initiative and AL State Dept.) was the presenter for all 4 workshops. She was incredible! She trains, presents, and coaches in the Montgomery, AL areas. I could listen to her present everyday, never get bored, and walk away with a plethora of great, practical information.

I will do a series of posts (probably about 4) for each workshop because there is so much information that I want to share with you. I will begin with the phonics workshop (which I forgot to take pictures of) and continue from there.

Happy reading! ūüôā

For the love of reading

I am involved in an interactive online book club right now with the Michigan Reading Association(yes, I live in Alabama!) on facebook. The book that we are reading and discussing is Readicide by Kelly Gallagher. It is a GREAT READ!!!!! You should buy this book and read it-it hits the nail on the head with reading inside our schools!

Here is a link to an interview/article with Kelly himself from Education Week. Check it out!
