We celebrated Read Across America Last week.
One of the fun activities we always do is a Read-A-thon.
Students take pledges and raise money for pages read.
Let me tell you, my kiddos have been reading,
For the Read-A-thon, my kiddos sustained their reading for 30 minutes. And let this proud teacher tell you, they read the entire time :)
We have been building our stamina in reading. You can read more HERE about it. My kiddos do a great job for 20 minutes, then someone gets restless or the potty breaks begin, but today they were focussed!
We have examined the traits of a super reader and those of a blah reader.
And these kiddos know, you're never going to be a super reader if you don't read.
Doesn't this pic make you want to cuddle up with your favorite book?
And this sweet girl brought her own bag of books to enjoy, (loved her bag :)
I didn't take many other pictures of our the activities, Open House is next week, 'nuff said :)
