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! 🙂

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! 🙂

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!
