Students are given one week to choose a “just right book” to share. Students are expected to practice reading their book aloud to family and friends at home. Students present the book to their class, reading the book aloud, engaging the audience by making eye contact, showing illustrations and asking questions to check for understanding.
This week Insiyah decided to add some creativity to her Reader’s Chair presentation. She re-created the characters, Mr. Boot’s scarecrow “Mr. Straw” and Mr. Dray’s scarecrow to help her retell the story she read to the class.
