Word After Word After Word

Any Word Watchers out there?  Check out this new one, just released last week:Word After Word After Word by Patricia Maclachlan

A group of fourth graders begin to see the powerful possibilities of words when Ms. Mirabel, a poet, visits their classroom.  Expect for your heart to sing as you read recognizable excerpts from other great pieces of literature throughout the book as well.

As a teacher, I always began my year with one goal in mind: to build a strong, supportive community of learners.  I wanted the classroom to be our classroom, where everyone felt respected.  I hoped we all could encourage each other so that everyone would feel free to express themselves through their writings. Word After Word After Word demonstrates this idea.  This would be a wonderful way to begin your school year.
