Room 14 is learning how to participate in Daily Five language activities. We have begun to build our stamina for reading by practicing Read to Self. During the reading time, children are checking for understanding, tuning into interesting words, going back and re-reading and cross checking for accuracy. Sounds like a lot of work but guess what ....it is actually a lot of fun and the kiddos really enjoy this quiet reading time. And so does Stretchy Stanley!!! We have him working out for 6 minutes while we read. Tomorrow we are going to see if he can lift his books for 8 minutes!
