We are working on getting our Daily 5 activity time going. These are literacy activities students are learning to do independently in preparation for when we start reading groups. So far the kids have been introduced to Read to Self, Read to Someone, Listening to Reading, and Word work.
On Fridays we get together with our third grade book buddies. This is a fun time for the kindergarteners to hear another student read to them and hopefully expose them to more books and help foster the love of reading. The third graders experienced book buddies when they were in kindergarten and they love that they now get the chance to read to someone younger. We are partnered with Mrs. Pearson’s class this year.
