Guided Reading Summer Book Study
Anyway, the biggest topic to take away from this chapter is take it SLOW! Help students gain independence. I appreciate how she says to use a time. There is a great online time at www.online-stopwatch.com it's easy to show through a projector if you have one in your room. There are some fun ones like the man running to the finish line or the bomb with the fuse slowly getting smaller. However, just be cautious they are eye catching and sometimes students will be watching the timer instead of doing their work. I found the egg timer works the best and isn't distracting.
I enjoyed reading this chapter and look forward to more learning with Jan Richardson.
One a side note, I am changing grade levels and want to change my blog. Anyone have any great ideas for a new name? I was thinking Learning with Lisa but that is taken. DARN! I wanted to not make it so grade level specific but catchy, fun and easy to remember. If you have any ideas..... let me know! I'm open!
