Good Readers...

Hello Everyone!
What does it mean to be a good reader as far as first graders are concerned?  Well, let's let first graders tell us!  This week we created a new anchor chart for what we thought good readers do.  After almost three weeks of building these kids up as far as what we will work on this year, I think they came up with a pretty good list!  We added their ideas to a cute chart that will hang in our room.  We have extra flowers to add later as we dig into and grow our reading. Great job, kids!! 
I made a smaller version of the poster for kids to take home, or put in their Reader's Response journals...I haven't decided yet.

  Happy Reading!!

I have to sneak in a sweet picture of one of my sweeties enjoying "practicing reading" with Stripes the Bibliobear in our reading tub!

  4. Wonderful! Nancy, how are you displaying your books on the top of the shelf? Is something holding them in place? The space just draws readers to it!

  5. Thank you everyone!
    Leanne- I used plastic gutters to hold my books. I cut one in half, painted the pieces and screwed them in to the wall. I love how the books are showing off their covers!!

  6. LOVE your ideas!! This is a great Poster. Thanks heaps for sharing. I can't wait to put it up in my classroom.
