My new obsession this year has been making and using anchor charts for my lessons. Here are just some of the anchor charts I have made this year.

Ideas for Celebrating D.E.A.R. Day (Drop Everything and Read)

Each year on April 12th, we celebrate a national day to honor reading. Even better, the whole month is often devoted to activities and events to encourage the love of reading in your children and within your family and circle of friends. The first D.E.A.R. Day was introduced in Beverly Cleary’s book Ramona Quimby, Age 8. The goal of the program is to make reading a regular part of everyone’s routine.
