I= I choose a good book
P- What is my PURPOSE for reading this book
I- Does this book INTEREST me?
C- Do I COMPREHEND what I am reading?
K- Do I KNOW most of the words?
We really focused on our purpose for reading today and what interests us. Over the week I will be providing mini lessons on knowing most of the words and comprehending.
When we shop I have each child do 2 things.
- I have them find 6 books from what I call my color dot tubs which are books that are at their level. I don't approach it this way with the kiddos though- at this point, they are just tubs that keep my books organized
- Each child got to find 6 books from our classroom library that INTERESTED them. At this point, the books may not be at their independent or instructional level, but we have discussed that there are 3 ways to read a book including, read the pictures.
I will say however, I was VERY pleased with how well everyone shopped today and the choices they made!!
