Read to Someone Center

On the second day of school, our first graders brought favorite books from home to school.  It was exciting to see the wide variety of books from the children’s home libraries.  Our classroom goal during center rotations is for the children to develop independence while working at their individual pace and reading level.  When I introduced the “read to someone” center, it was my hope the children would read for 5 minutes, but this group of enthusiastic readers read for 15 minutes!  We still have a lot of work to do to get all children reading texts appropriate to their developmental levels, but what a great start, and how thrilling to see these students already have the skills and interest to work independently!
