We started a special time in first grade this week….it’s called “Daily 5.” The first part we introduced is “Read to Self.” The students were able to pick some “Good fit” books on their own. They then spread out and read for 7 minutes silently. They are building up their stamina to reach our goal of reading for 20 minutes. They were so proud today and asked “Will you take our pictures if we do well?” Of course!!!!
26 first graders reading in a room silently? It’s amazing! You could’ve heard a pin drop. Ask your child about what he or she read. Ask them how it felt. What is our goal?
