Read to Self--Day 1!

Students tried "Read to Self" time for the very FIRST time today! The expectations are:

  • Find a reading spot quickly
  • Start reading quietly right away
  • Read the whole time
  • Stay in one place
We are keeping track of our reading stamina and the class sustained "Read to Self" time for an entire three minutes today! This may not seem long, but it's crucial that everyone knows the expectations of Read to Self, so we build stamina little by little. Before we know it, everyone will be reading independently for 20 minutes! It's amazing, and it WILL happen! Check out a snippet of Read to Self time today. Amazing--especially on a 93 degree day!
