Special Readers in October
Each Thursday, 2 children 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! Have them practice with you at least a couple of times – this will help insure they have a successful and fun time when they are in front of their peers.
Here is the upcoming schedule for the next few weeks – Mark your calendars!
October 1 – Lea and Lukas
October 8 – Atticus and Trent
October 22 – Melissa and Freya
October 29 – Noah and Toussaint
November 5 – Ian and Erin
