Just curious to know how many of you out there have read Interactive Writing by McCarrier, Pinnell and Fountas.
I’ve started reading it now that grad classes are over for 3 weeks. What are your favorite ideas that you use from it in your kindergarten classroom? I can’t wait to try the names chart–that’s a better approach to a name word wall I think! Do you use this name chart in conjunction with a name word wall or just use the chart? I think it would be double duty if you had both.
What are some other great AHA things from this book that you use? I’m on chapter 2 and my goal is to finish tomorrow (Monday) or Tuesday.
Check out my calendar that I made:
I’m going to be holding a class to teach others how to make it soon! (Sorry the lighting isn’t the best!). 🙂 We go back on the 15th!

Could you share more about the name chart…I am trying to conserve on space-my word wall will need more room this year.I saved this book in my favorites!
i LOVE the murals!! Can’t wait to try with my class this year!
Could you explain how you made that really cute calendar?
I purchased a tutorial off Craft Central.com and it showed me how to create them using Stampin’ Up! products ( I can send you a catalog for $10 if you’re interested).
