Reading with a partner is not only fun, it also extends our time spent with books. We've been learning different ways that partners work together. Sometimes partners read the same book, sometimes they take turns reading, sometimes they talk about books, but they ALWAYS help each other if one gets stuck 😊
Reading Workshop looks very different now that we have hit mid-November. This week we chose our own reading spots... what a treat! They LOVE being given the responsibility to choose a place, in our room, where they can do their best reading. They are in their own space with their own book boxes. Their book boxes contain 5-6 pattern books and a couple of our favorite story books. We are building stamina... right now, they are able to sustain about 10 minutes of super quiet time with their books! Yay readers!! 😊
We won! Remember the "get free breadsticks with the purchase of a pizza bags" that were sent home last month?? There was a pizza party offered to the class that redeemed the most bags. Our class won! So, Papa Romonos supplied our class with some delicious pizza and breadsticks yesterday afternoon! The kids really enjoyed the surprise!
Thank you for your support and thank you to Papa Romonos!
