Reading groups have been up and running for a few weeks now. Please take the time to read with your child each night. It's important for him/her to practice the book sent home. This will help to improve his/her reading and build fluency.
I'm taking a Literacy Processing course this year, am working one on one with a student for 30 minutes everyday, and am learning so much. I'm trying to meet with three groups everyday. We spend the first day completing word work activities, do a book walk through, and read together. The next day we complete writing about our story.
I REALLY enjoy this time because I can work one on one with students on specific skills.
Today, Donna told me she LOVED reading group time, especially our writing days. I let them generate their own sentence today and this is what she wrote. The group was VERY impressed with her illustration so I had to snap a picture to share with you!
