Today I wanted to put a spin on “silent reading” with my little kinders. I have just introduced them to small decodable books, where they can read their sight words, or just tell a story looking at the pictures. I wanted them to practice reading and turning the pages to the picture books in our class library. I thought…lets bust out the puppets and stuffed animals and read to them!!!
I asked each child to choose a furry friend in the classroom and read to it! Most of the students did a great job staying on task, and “pretending” to read to their little animal. You have to see these adorable pictures…
