One of my favorite reasons to teach the upper grades is reading real chapter books. Literature circles and literature snack talks are pretty much at the top of my list. Over the past few years, I have become very comfortable teaching the older grades. Yes, I still have A LOT to learn, but I feel my right fit is in the older grades. I connect with them, and I enjoy having real conversations. Today, our school had an outdoor field day for 5th grade. Watching the students compete together and seeing the kids cheer for each other just made me smile inside. It is crazy to me that you can already tell which kids are going to be true athletes. Ok, back to my regular scheduled post...chapter books!
