It's the eighth day in kindergarten and already our class reading time is very productive. Each of the students has a reading bag. In their reading bag are four or five emergent reader and picture books as well as one ABC book. We will be adding and removing books throughout the year. Soon, every student will have books at their "just right" reading level.
Kindergarten students have learned that there are three ways to read a book:
--- Read the pictures.
--- Read the words.
--- Retell the story.
