We talked today about what to be reading at home and school. We discussed the benefits of having one just-right chapter book for school AND home. Students should work towards finishing one book before beginning another. Therefore, I will look to reading logs to see that pattern. Reading baggies should help with this and in the next few weeks, students will really work on building the habit of bringing their book back and forth to school in their baggie.
Having more than one book could get confusing, especially when we start reading groups and students have a book with that group too. Lots of characters and themes to keep track of!
This plan was not a favorite of all students, but each will work towards this goal. Thank you for helping us with it!
