It is time to start our “Special Reader” routine! Each Wednesday, 2 children will come with a book to share with their classmates. This is a great opportunity to practice reading aloud (clearly, loudly, and with expression) as well as being a great audience member (listening with ears, eyes, and heart).
If it is your child’s turn to be a special reader, please help them select an appropriate book. Picture books with humor are always appreciated. I know many children are excited when they are able to read longer chapter books, but I have to say that unless they are short, funny excerpts, it can be difficult to retain the attention of the audience!
Here is the upcoming schedule – Mark your calendars!
• September 10 – Alec and Justin
• September 17 – Erin and Peter
• September 24 – Lea and Beatrix
