One of my goals with my struggling readers is to be as consistent as possible. Normally I’m pretty good at honouring this goal. Yet lately my schedule and my days have been a little hectic. I’ve been away a couple of days, and when I have been at school a few issues surfaced that demanded my immediate attention.
When my little readers arrive at my office door, bookbags in hand, and they realize that I’m busy, their shoulders tend to sag. And on Friday when I went into a grade one class to ask the students if they wanted to read with me that afternoon (since I missed their morning time), it was art class. Both students chose to read.
These kids are doing their part: I will keep trying to do mine!

It’s your heart that makes all the difference.
Your time, patience and commitment to the students is so precious to them! My stu who read with you prob ask me 3-5 times if it is reading time yet because they WANT to be there.
Thank you for your dedication to those students who really need it the most.
They will always choose you!
You demonstrate emphatically how learning and progress and most worthy human endeavours are built upon personal relationships!
