Read to Someone

We begin each morning right here.  After we finish our Morning Meeting, we make our plans for reading.  Usually, we start with a mini-lesson.  This gives us a chance to take a look at
 a mentor text, discuss a strategy that good readers can use or just enjoy a good story.  Then, we think about which of our daily literacy activities would help us to reach our reading goals.  One of these choices is "Read to Someone".  Reading to Someone helps us improve our comprehension and fluency, and it is fun!

Read to Self

We begin everyday with literacy activites that help us to become "strong readers who love to read".   We practice each activity until we become independent and then we work to increase our stamina.

Read to Self is the first reading activity we practiced.  We've learned to choose "good fit" books, and read each day to improve comprehension.
