My exceptional, resilient, and eager 3rd graders need books in their hands! They have ample opportunities to access online resources (which they appreciate greatly)! But, their precious question (can I have a book to follow along, Mrs.Oliver?) is unfortunately answered with “No, I’m so sorry, but I know that you’ll be a fabulous, active listener.” They desperately want to be life long readers! I’m honored to be their teacher!
Reading with children daily is one of the highest indicators of successful academic careers. Students are building vocabulary, making connections, and strengthening their confidence in self, school, and relationships. Novel studies and read alouds open the doors to adventures, creativity, ideas and more. Having a tangible copy, where children can follow along word by word, page by page, and chapter by chapter leads to priceless experiences! Why not provide that opportunity to our future looking directly back at us? The saying “Today a Reader, Tomorrow a Leader” couldn’t be anymore accurate.
