Day 178: Dr. Bintz (final time this year)

I know I've posted about our amazing literacy consultant (Dr. Bintz) before, but today was his last day with us (at least for this school year). I joined several science teachers for an afternoon tour of award winning literature that Dr. Bintz finds and uses to teach literacy skills embedded within content. Several of these books are used as 'anchor' books, books the kids will constantly refer back to as they work on projects involving other related books. So much great learning, even at the end of the year!
