Reading Looks Like Many Things...

As the year winds down, I like to take a moment to reflect on how far our first graders have come.  We have readers!  We have kiddos that devour words.  Today we took a moment to check out how reading looks in our classroom.  We were amazed at how different reading can look.  In just a 60 minute snippet learners were:

-Reading and Spelling on the iPads and Kindles
-Playing the Reading Ball
-Partner Reading
-Close Reading in groups
-Reading Response Articles
-Book Groups
-Reading to Self

It is so amazing that first graders can make choices that help them to become better readers! They have truly taken ownership of their reading growth.

Stay tuned because we are hoping to have our 300 hour challenge completed by Friday!  Then we will celebrate by SILLY STRINGING Mr. Berry!
