Special Readers Update

We will continue to have our Special Readers routine on Wednesday morning, from about 10:40 to 11:00. 
If a child comes with a longer book, the second reader may have to be rescheduled. This has happened 
a couple of times. Normally, though, both readers have had time. As always, parents and other adults in the
children's lives are always welcome as audience members. 

A reminder of how it works:

Two children will come prepared to read a special book aloud to their classmates. This book should be picked out 
at home and practiced several times for increased fluency and expression. Shorter, funny picture books are the 
most popular with audience members, although children have also had success reading joke/riddle books, short 
mystery stories, poetry, and other types of literature.

Not only does this time give the readers a chance to become better readers, it also gives the rest of the class a 
chance to practice being good audience members. We are learning to listen with not only our ears, but with our 
eyes, mouths, and hearts.

Already scheduled:
