As I continue to read, I have noted several times that Donalyn restates how important it is to give the children self selected reading time daily in a book that they pick. It is about creating a love of reading to last a lifetime. Imagine if WE could ignite that fire in first grade (or kindergarten or second...). I think about how I have leveled so many books in my personal library. Then I think to The Sisters and The Daily 5 philosophy. It seems to go hand and hand with that of The Book Whisperer. Any thoughts?
As always, the first 3 friends to leave a comment will get this unit for FREE! I am working on the other 4 vowels and hope to have them posted by the end of the week. Hope you have tomorrow off:)
