In August 5H discussed their reading habits and goals for the year. I challenged each student to choose the goal of reading 20, 30 or 40 books this year. Each student has a Book Tower reading log in their reader’s notebook to record the books they are reading. We also made the goal of reading 186 books collectively (the number of days in school) this year. So far we have read 40! Here is the book tower started in the classroom.
Grade 5 LOVES to read! It has been wonderful to see how most students really love books. We have had 20-40 minutes of independent reading each day. Our goal has been to increase our reading stamina by keeping track of minutes or pages read.
