Each Wednesday one student has the opportunity to share a book of his/her choice with the class. This week, Said had the opportunity to share one of his favorite books.
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 their understanding.
Said did a fantastic job involving his audience while reading. He paused at certain points in the book to ask his audience to make predictions as to what they thought might happen next. He would continue reading and then ask his audience if their predictions were correct.
