Slice of Life Challenge
Please join the challenge over at Two Writing Teachers!
To celebrate the end of every quarter, we have Zone Day.
The term is inspired by Nancie Atwell's book The Reading Zone. I LOVE that reading is a celebration for my students.

My favorite part of Zone Day was watching one class sustain deep reading for 75 minutes.
They only stopped to enthusiastically discuss what just happened! This same group of students could barely read for 15 minutes in September. Seeing this growth INSPIRES me! Watching them read and identify authors they love and recommend books to each other...I'm so proud.
That's how I spent my day. I read with them, sometimes to them...all day long! What a great job I have...I get to read, celebrate reading, with amazing and motivated sixth graders!
I was so busy reading...I didn't take any pictures...so the pictures here are of my family reading!
