A Year of Reading is a blog written by, in their own words, “two teachers who read. A lot.” I always feel like I am in the back of their classroom listening in as they turn kids on to reading and writing and poetry. So many of the lessons they share with their young students are just as important to this old student.

This blog is also the home of the great list, 100 Cool Teachers in Children’s Literature (they’re actually up to 128 now.)

A couple of my favorite posts are the current one Unit of Study on THEME (beginnings) and THEME (middle, part 2)
