Cloudy with a chance of…

November 9, 2008

Meatballs?!? What weather report is that, you ask? Just the book Elizabeth choose to read to us during Grama Allen’s latest visit.

Our girl loves to read. She is getting better at choosing appropriate level books for herself at school and really likes coming home and reading to us and to herself. For a while she was bringing home books that were below her reading level, but her class has spent a good amount of time learning about book choices. They also completed all their reading assessments and that’s helping to guide Mrs. Nessen, the parent volunteers and most importantly, the kids in book choice: easy, just right, or challenging.

Elizabeth usually chooses ‘just right’ books to bring home and read from the class library, and checks out ‘challenging’ books from the school library for us to help her work on at home. Although, our consistently independent daughter really doesn’t like to ask for help and much prefers to use her different reading strategies to get through her books. How proud we are of our bookworm!
