Today, what if we just kept it simple in our literacy classrooms?
What if we let go of busywork and time-killers?
What if we created truly student-centered environments?
What if we started today?
today, let’s keep it simple
books . . .
to nourish their hearts and minds
writing tools and blank paper . . .
to explore and stretch their ideas
time with peers . . .
to collaborate and expand their thinking
quiet spaces. . .
to reflect and grow
