I definitely have a favorite, or maybe two favorites! Last year was my first year in the general education classroom. I previously taught special education for 7 years. I've taught every grade level K-12 at some point and I have always loved teaching reading. From the youngest little ones starting with letter/sound identification to the oldest students doing novel studies and really getting into books it's by far my favorite time of the day. I've had a lot of different experiences since most of the kids I've worked with struggled with reading. Seeing them find a joy in words has always been a highlight of my year and made me keep going even when I wasn't feeling very successful as a teacher.
Now that I'm in a self contained classroom all day I still love reading. Watching my 2nd graders with their reading bags in a quiet spot reading a book they are excited about makes me so happy! Seeing them understand reading makes me even more thrilled! I love my classroom library, I spend way to much money on books but I can't help it I love them as much as the kids do!
One of my all time favorite resources has been this book
I Love this!
