I absolutely loved the book Beautiful Blackbird on today. Although, I am an adult, it made me swell up with pride reading the words, "Black is beautiful". I look forward to reading this book to my elementary students and using narrative pantomime and everybody do with this book and others! I would love to know what other books you have used for this activity :) Thank you for all that you do!

Group B folks, I forgot to include one of the texts I mentioned in the notes. It was, "Action Strategies for Deepening Comprehension by Jeffery D. Wilhelm (c2002). He discusses "Show Me, Help Me, Let Me." It's also a great resource for Role Work, which we'll talk more about on Thursday. (Group A, feel free to check this resource out as well!)

Sarah really thought through her lessons for us and connected it to research based instruction. She is really jump-starting my thinking and helping me to change / improve my teaching strategies. Thank you!
