We Did It!

Since the beginning of the year, we have been working hard to build our stamina during Read to Self. Our goal was to be able to read independently for at least 25 minutes. We knew that if we could do that for three days in a row, that we had built that stamina. This week, WE DID IT!
This graph shows how many minutes we were able to do each day.


And this is what it looks like in our classroom when we are reading. The students get to choose where they sit.


I am beyond proud of how hard they have all worked to get here.

Reading by Ourselves

As part of our reading program, we’ve been building our stamina in reading to ourselves. We know that to be good readers we have to spend a lot of time reading and we are reading to ourselves a few more minutes each day.

Just look at these children concentrate!
