All the way to Third?

I'm new to this idea but I think it's great!

I read Reading With Meaning as my professional read for the summer. I am frustrated more than ever.

I think all students should get this experience as their first introduction to reading. Which led to my first question: Is it necessary for the teacher to have a love of reading herself to get this message across to students? (our first grade teachers do not read for pleasure or professional growth unless forced)

I became more frustrated as I read on because my students are so far behind in their reading skills compared to the first graders in Miller's class. How can I get these skills to 3rd graders if I don't have the time? How can I not find the time? How do I do this for 3rd graders? Do I use the same titles and mini lessons?

Ideas welcome!!

D.

Hi Lodi! I replied to your questions when you asked them on the "Debbie Miller's Discussion's New Home" link. You can read it there... good luck to you!

I will be teaching third grade also this year. My principal has told me that I must use the basal. However, I love DM's ideas. The only way I can think to include the DM is during my guided reading time. I plan to use mini lessons and have the small group chose books to read. This will all follow DM's plans. I have one question for those planning or who have done this already: how big should my classroom library be? I am a third year teacher-I have taught fourth in the past. My library is not large. What i do have is mostly chapter books. I love the idea of teaching with picture story books. I just don't know if I have enough books to carry my plan through. I have started buying some picture story books this summer (thrift stores). My classroom library will be nowhere near DM. Please help, I need guidance on this. Thanks a bunch! Should I just wait a few years until i can build a larger library or go with what I have?
