We will definitely be bringing some of the games into our classroom in the next few weeks.
Today we continued to practice Read to Self. Students are working on picking a good spot, reading the whole time, and building their stamina.
We also had a discussion about how to pick good books. First, I kinda tricked the kiddos by telling them all about my different pairs of shoes and how each one has a purpose and makes me excited to do that activity. Then I explained how I was actually teaching them about books and how when we pick them, we need to think about our purpose and if that book will make us excited to read it.
|Ask students to tell you about all my shoes and their purposes :)|
We're up to 16 minutes of independent reading!! Way to go room 9!
