Student Ownership of Resources

I have some Reading Recovery teachers next to me in the LMC. Now and then a funny story is encountered.

A few days ago there was this discussion about animals. The teacher was not clear which animal this student was referring to but wanted to support his interest in non-fiction. The teacher checked out a few books and planned on sharing them with him the next time they met together.

Before she was able to do this at their next encounter, the young man informed her it was a rhinoceros because at home he looked it up on Pebble Go.
