On Feeling (not) Useful

Well, it certainly has been a while since I’ve stopped by. I felt the pull to write once again as I am watch my fifth graders craft allegorical stories.

Funny thing is, they’re the same group who formed trusted reader circles in fourth grade.

And here they are, working with a new set of trusted readers. They’re talking to each other about what’s going well, where they are struggling, and what they can do to improve their writing.

And me?

I’m here. They’ve all shared their work with me, and I can read every piece. I can comment on documents and confer with my students. They can also come to me if they want me to be one of their readers. And I will.

Right now, though? I’m just…enjoying the view.
