Last week Ms. Lirenman was finally able to start reading with us in small groups after spending a lot of time reading with us one on one and getting us ready to read and work independently. Here are a few of us working with her at the rainbow table. You'll notice some of us are gluing our newest reading strategy into our literacy conference books. This group was learning about using pictures to help solve unknown words. They were also reinforcing the strategy of checking for understanding.
Here's what we sound like in action. You're probably wondering where the rest of our students are. Believe it or not they are in the classroom too, they are just in secret spots reading on their own.
