Reflection: Using Textual Evidence - Lesson 4 of Cinder Book One - Section 1: Warm Up


With the load of Common Core Standards to address, many people ask, "Why use your class time to allow students to read their independent books?" Well, I do this for two reasons.  One is that they are just like we are -they are busy little people outside of school- and need that sacred, guaranteed time each week to read.  If they have no time to devote to their books, how will they ever get hooked? If I can hook them on Friday, they are more likely to read over the weekend.

Two is that it shows them that I value their personal reading as much as I do our class reading.  Whenever I can I read with them.  I also use the time to check their reading logs.  I've uploaded a copy of the reading log here. As you will see, I do not require my students to keep up with reading daily, but weekly.
