As an instructional coach, I work more with teachers than kids most days--and I really miss the kids. This year my office is next to a fourth grade classroom, and a few months ago one of the fourth grade boys wandered by and volunteered that he was reading Charlotte's Web. Over the next few weeks, I asked him about the book when I saw him in the hall and he began stopping in my doorway to tell me about how surprised he was when he found out that Charlotte was a spider and what he thought was going to happen to each of the characters. He made sure to come find me when he finished the book because he wanted to talk about the ending and tell me that he'd already started a new book--Andrew Clements' Lunch Money--because he wanted to make sure I had read it, too. It's amazing how books can build relationships! I'm really looking forward to reading Disrupting Thinking to learn new ways to continue fostering a purpose and love for reading in students as I transition back into an intermediate classroom this fall.
