A Poem About Reading: Today Was a Good Day!

I looked around my room today and what do you suppose I saw?


Children deeply engaged in reading. I was totally in awe!


Is it always like this, you might ask?


No, they're children, at times they get off task!


So exactly what do I do?


It's simple, I give them the freedom to choose


which books they want to read 


and where they want to sit.


Do I have to redirect them?
Certainly!


But on days when I look around and this is what I see,


I smile to myself and then I say . . .
Today was a good day!

Trust them to choose!

Don't judge my poetry skills. :-)

    1. :-) Thank you! When I stop wanting to learn and getting excited about kids learning it will be time for me to retire.
