Today in Division 2 we talked about why it is so important to practice reading often! We came up with lots of great reasons to read: you can find information, get smarter, and become a better reader. Someone even suggested that practicing reading now will make us great readers when it's our turn to read to our own kids some day! Most of all, we thought it was important to read a lot because, well, it's fun!
After reading through a picture book together, we talked about what it means to be an independent reader. Look at all of our great ideas! Today we worked on reading independently for just three minutes without any interruptions. We're building our stamina for reading. That means we're training our body and our brains to read independently. Tomorrow we're going to read for a little longer, and then a little longer, and then a little longer. You get the idea!
What are we reading, anyway? Our book bins are filled with all kinds of different books. We have picture books, chapter books, non-fiction books, and more!
