Regie Routman Residency 2014 – 2015

Transforming our teaching through:

  1. Reading to Understand

  2. Writing for Audience and Purpose

  3. Reading and Writing Connections

Our school’s professional development focus this year is on literacy.  My students have been learning about habits and how to create a habit for writing.  We talked about how writing becomes easier the more we practice and how eventually if you do something enough, it becomes a habit.  Our class decided to make a habit out of our writing.  We needed to write 50 words every single day for 30 days.  At the end of our #30DayWritingChallenge, we would get a certificate of completion.  We have set individual goals and are keeping personal track of our progress using a calendar to cross off dates.  Today was our first day, and it was a success!
