Silent Reading

DCIM100GOPROStudents started reading silently to themselves for 10 min. (3-5) and 5 min (k-2) about a month ago.  Students were allowed to choose any book in the library, or even two if they needed, and just read for the allotted time period. At first, it was a challenge for many of the students, but now, they are really enjoying the reading alone.  I must admit that some of the places are out of the norm, but as long as we keep their fingers away from the cords, we should be fine.

GO READ A BOOK!

Challenge Yourself

In the past, students used a template to help answer questions about specific books, but now that the school year is almost halfway completed, students are being ask to give describe a book WITHOUT the template.

The goal is for the students to recall as much information from the book, as well as figure out a way to “sell” the books to others. When this occurs, there will be mistakes, but sometimes learning is dictated by mistakes.
