Reader’s Chair

Each Wednesday one student has the opportunity to share a book of his/her choice with the class. This week, Henry 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.

Henry is a strong reader. He enjoys reading challenging chapter books. He, like many other grade 2 boys at the moment, likes reading books from the Fantasy and Science Fiction genres. Henry shared a book from a series that he has been reading for quite some time. He read a small portion of his book and he shared with his classmates games and activities that accompany his book.

This Week’s IST Grade 2 Reading Recommendation:
