Literacy in the Classroom
I have been talking to my mom a lot about literacy and how she uses it in the classroom. I really felt that this was giving me a chance to bounce ideas off her about the things that we have talked about in the classroom. she told me that literacy is so important in her school system. The principal always tries to talk to the teachers about different ways to talk about literacy. The teachers have tried so many different ways to get thechildren interested in what is going on in the classroom. The idea that I liked the most was that the children read a story and then put on a play about the story. But instead of the ending they had read, they had to make up their own endings. I think that this is a great way of getting the children involved in literacy and excited about what is going on. It also gives them a chance to use their imaginitaions.
