Reflection: Self-Talk Read Across America Day: Read, Read, Read! - Section 3: Read, Read, Read!


Not only does this lesson give students an uninterrupted time to read, it also gives me a great excuse to catch up on much needed conferring. Testing and make up work have consumed my time lately and I’ve fallen behind in my conferences. I miss listening to students read, checking in on how they’re progressing with specific skills, and seeing what their recent book choices have been.

It also gives students a chance to catch up on their reading logs. I’ve noticed over the past few weeks that students have been neglecting their logs. I know that they are reading, but I haven’t seen the proof on their papers. Reading multiple short texts today gives them several opportunities to add to their logs and gets them excited to complete yet one more.
