Children's Literature

I found a site where you can learn about great, new children's literature. I know there are so many sources out there, at times it can be overwhelming. Are there any great sources you know of? Maybe we can save one another some time by cutting to the chase. http://planetesme.blogspot.com/

Writing Workshops

I love the idea of writing workshops. Here is a site where teachers share ideas of workshops they have tried. Check it out...maybe even blog about some of your own ideas! http://twowritingteachers.wordpress.com/

Reading Journal

Keeping a reading journal might be a great way to self motivate students. Not only will parents and teachers be able keep track of progress, but being able to see their own progress would be a great internal motivator for our young ones. What do you think? Has anyone ever had their kids or students keep a reading journal? How did they work for you?http://www.ehow.com/how_5227099_keep-reading-journal.html
