December will need a wrap up post (at some point.) We had a spontaneous production of "A Charlie Brown Christmas", an "ice rink" in the basement, a book party, lovely dinner parties, and Claude's insistence on reading everything by her-own-self.

Happy New Year from The Reading and Writing House!
A former classroom teacher, I am currently teaching Reading Intervention part-time for a public school district and am continuing my work as a part-time literacy consultant, working with teachers to refine their Reading and Writing Workshops. I also volunteer with children and their families in our community for storytelling, book-making, and writing workshops.
At home, I am raising two readers and writers, now ages 5 and 9. We are an enthusiastic public-schooling family.
This blog is about finding common ground and joy with educational philosophy and parenting.
