Ideal environment to read. It seems MM is becoming more and more natural and easier to implement without too much thinking but rather from the heart with science behind it. Whenever possible we are now outdoors and moving. Colleagues have noticed the difference in behavior and attitude in my students and are starting to copy and getting “infected with the passion”.

Today we spend our “Reader’s Workshop” outdoors finding peace in the fall breeze reading while enjoying the last warm days before winter moves in. Students ‘sank’ into their stories because there were no speakers distracting them, no bells putting limits on their journey into a story, just nature supporting their enjoyment.
