To make things even more wonderful, I received this email from a parent:
"My daughter assigned the family reading groups this evening. She is putting your lessons into practice at home. :)"Mom also sent along this picture of her daughter with a poster the daughter made for her family. Notice the thinking skills she wrote on her poster. What a great student! She has internalized the thinking skills and can teach them to others.
In our next video we will demonstrate how we learned each skill. Stay tuned, and remember...if second graders can learn and use these skills, so can upper grades!
If you would like a copy of the "Good Readers" poster seen in the background of the video, click the 'products' tab at the top of this page.
