Week 3

Building Stamina
We have been practicing one of the Daily 5 reading stations, read to self.  When we read to self, we:
  • start right away
  • stay in one place
  • read books the whole time
We are working to build stamina up to 20 minutes as a class!  It is a hard work to read 20 minutes, but we are finding a lot of interesting books and having fun learning to read.  Once we have 20 minutes of stamina, I can start meeting with small groups of children or individual students for differentiated reading instruction.  Our record this week was 15 minutes!  We are almost there.

Insect Hunt
We went on an insect hunt.  We found grasshoppers, crickets, dragonflies, and moths.  After bringing them back to the room, we observed them closely and recorded our findings.  Some of us already posted our observation on the blog.  Please visit your child's blog at
