Welcome back to my Reading Room! Reading Recovery and Literacy Groups are underway. Homework for me is brief and typically involves reading student-selected familiar books that come home in the colorful reading pouch. This confidence-boosting revisit provides powerful practice at home. Regular read alouds, if time permits, are valuable for vocabulary development and access to higher level story-lines and nonfiction content.
