March is Reading Month Activity
C2W and EMWP celebrated March is Reading Month and the connections between reading and writing. We encouraged students, teachers, and family members to reflect on their reading habits and created two collections of writing. Our Reflections on Reading [PDF] collection features articles written about reading. We collaborated with students at Creekside Intermediate School in Dexter, MI, to create the Smith/Shipley Super Star Book Reviews [PDF] collection. We hope you enjoy our featured writing about reading!
