Good readers practice, practice, practice!

The kids in Room 104 have done such a wonderful job of practicing their reading. Each day they meet to read with a guided reading group in the morning to work on their reading skills. Then, later in the afternoon, we read a story all together and work on a comprehension skill. After that they get independent time to read on their own and practice all the skills they have learned. After all this reading, reading, reading, they always want five extra minutes to do some partner reading. And after that…yup, they still want to read. We have had first grade poem experts share some of our poems aloud to the whole class each day. I am so amazed at how excited and confident our readers are growing. It is very thrilling for me to watch!
