Join your writing colleagues this summer to polish up your reading like a writer skills and get ready and energized to teach your students how to read like writers too. Walk away with a new lens to view your favorite books as mentors for your students to stand on while they make decisions about how to structure writing and how to choose wondrous words.
Once you read Wondrous Words by Katie Wood Ray, you will read children’s literature with new lenses. You will read like a writer and even better--learn how to teach your students how to read like writers. Studying this book along with your writing peers will be the gift you give yourself and your future students. Wondrous Words by Katie Wood Ray was one of NCTE’s most popular books. And under my watch it continues to receive mention by authors like Ralph Fletcher, Penny Kittle, along with many others in the greater conversations about teaching writing. Uncover this book’s gifts in great company, your writing colleagues, and you will be amazed at what you discover as a writer and teacher of writers.
