Sometimes I wonder how much of what I say actually sticks inside those precious little minds. I found out yesterday.
As I stopped by a child's desk for a reading conference, I noticed her reading notebook open, as well as her chapter book---she was using the strategy! All by herself, without any prompting! Did I mention that this is one of those children who really needed the strategy? Needless to say, I was pleased, proud, and impressed.
I love those moments.
