Reflection: Shared Expectations I Can Read ANYWHERE! - Section 4: Assessment


Setting up a procedure for silent reading is important in maintaining a quiet learning environment.  By assigning each child to a book nook, I have control over the types of areas used for silent reading, and I can train the children how to maintain their reading in that location.  After a few weeks of using the chart with me manipulating the situation, I can turn it over to the children to make their own book nook decisions.  A few weeks after that, the children no longer need the chart because they no the places where they feel the most comfortable.
