This week grade 2 will be focusing on independent reading skills. Students have already started to discuss the importance of reading everyday but what does reading look like? What does reading sound like? Reading is looking through and reading just the pictures. Reading is understanding by reading the words. Reading also happens when we retell a story. Reading can happen silently or when we read aloud or retell to others.
Students are learning how to find books that are not too difficult, not too easy but books that are “just right”. Students will be using the Five Finger Test and other tools to determine what books are “just right” for them to be reading.
