Wiggle Room

IMG_1066Everything’s coming up nasturtiums.  After I had to tell my principal that we couldn’t apply for a Family Literacy Project grant, we got some wiggle room.

Last year we did a high needs school professional development in writing project, which we will tie into the family literacy this fall.

It was the best-est birthday present.  As an interventionist, I long to converse and read and write with the parents.  I want to see the children as they show off their new skills.  I want the busy parents to know how important and appreciated they are.  I want them to be confident in prompting and talking about reading and writing.

In the windstorm of my day and the mobility of my flexible groupings I haven’t gotten to this parent piece yet.  It is going to happen now.

Yay!

  1. Sounds exciting! I especially enjoyed your second to last paragraph:
