100 Minutes Book Study

Thinking of Teaching
Hi Friends,

I am teaming up with some fellow bloggers to participate in a new book study. Beth from Thinking of Teaching selected 100 Minutes: Making Every Minute Count in the Literacy Block by Lisa Donohue.

I was really excited to get my hands on this book because it offers many ways to structure the literacy block that aren't Daily 5 based. I think Daily 5 is fabulous and jumped on board with it when I switched from fourth to first grade this year. I struggled with the management and upkeep. I put it on the back burner until I could reread the book and relaunch the program. That was in September! Do you think I have relaunched? Um, no.

I will be hosting one chapter and I will also be offering a mini give away of my own. My TpT shop is still "under development," so I am still figuring out what I will put up for grabs! Head on over  to Thinking of Teaching to learn all about this exciting book study and enter to win some cool stuff!

Happy Reading!
