It's crazy to think that the summer is already more than half way through. I have less than a month before I got back to my regular classroom, and today said my final goodbyes to my students from the summer reading clinic I worked at. We had six weeks of great fun, engaged learning, and lots of time spent on the commons of the college chasing small wildlife in an endeavor to "study" them.
I worked with six kids, and another reading specialist to design instruction that targeted each individual student to help make them a stronger reader. Six weeks is a short amount of time to work with a child, but I loved each one of mine dearly, and was excited to see their growth in many aspects of literacy.
