We had the honor of being in Pam's room in Vancouver, Washington as her students were doing Daily 5 and she was conferring. We couldn't help but snap a photo of one of her children reading. Pam and other teachers at her school provide a variety of blankets (all washable) for students to grab if they choose. For some it is a comfort thing, for others the mere weight of the blanket can support their staying in one spot. What a great idea!
