Yesterday was a little different as one of my third grade students came barreling through the door exclaiming, "There was a cool plot twist!"
I immediately smiled for lots of reasons. One, I knew he had done his homework of completing the book. Two, he used the word plot AND knew what it meant - yay! And three, he was so excited to share about the book that he couldn't wait!
This little boy started an amazing book discussion and it was one of the best parts of my day. I love authentic learning moments like this one. :)
