Private reading

The children are becoming strong independent readers. This means they are looking at a book on their own (privately) for about 10 minutes. While looking at the pictures, the children are finding clues about the story; while looking at the letters or words they are finding some they know; and while enjoying the book the children are finding interesting parts to later share with a friend. In the next few weeks, I will be stressing the Superpower of pointing to words to make sure they understand that each word is one group of letters to reinforce one-to-one correspondence when they read.
