I love celebrating the successes of my students.  Today one of my Reading Recovery students wanted to know how many words he had on his writing chart.  I told him he had 80 and he wanted to get to 100.  I thought we would add a couple more, but he just started writing word after word after word.  “Have I shown you tub?….Have I shown you…”  I was amazed!  And within 10 minutes my little Daniel had added 21 new words to his writing vocabulary, which brought his grand total up to 101 words.  (Oddly enough today is the 101th day of school.)
