Simple Pleasure

I walked out of our learning space today for what I thought would be a quick few minutes to get the book Fever for a student.  This quick few minutes turned into a longer 15 minutes and when I finally made it back to our room to resume my conferring, I was met with a full group of 6th graders, each with his or her head in literature (the genre and type was deep and wide).  Not one student was off task, staring into space, or sleeping and I had the simple pleasure of basking in the glory of what we had created together…a community of literate adolescents who could easily carry on independently in my short absence.  All of that launching sure paid off!

    Wow, that’s amazing that all your kids were so engaged, even with you out of the classroom. You should be proud of being able to create that kind of community in your class! 🙂
