We are continuing along our path to learn more about the importance of reading to small children. In the past week, we have made several steps towards that goal. We all think it is pretty cool that our Edublogs Student Bogging Challenge this week is all about global issues. Literacy is important the whole-world over, and we have decided that we can make a small difference in our world when it comes to encouraging early readers!
Students spent Friday reading 4 different articles on the subject of early literacy. Each article came from the Early Moments website, and centered around suggestions to parents and reading research. Room 204 friends took notes as they worked in cooperative groups, and they learned many strategies for improving literacy early on.
On Monday, Room 204 students wrote about their own reading memories growing up — here are a few to share:
I love how thoughtful my students are!!
Today, we spent time looking through board books, and writing notes in our journals about why they are good for kids. Each student was able to review at least 5 books, and when asked to make more connections to their childhood reading experiences, this is what they came up with!
So, what is this “project” Mrs. Brooks is gabbing about? We’ll be posting the details, soon!!! Stay tuned!!!
