Each Wednesday one student has the opportunity to share a book of his/her choice with the class. This week, Aidan 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.
Aidan is a voracious reader. (That means he likes to read a lot!) Aidan chose a challenging book about King Arthur to read to the class. This being a large chapter book, Aidan was able to read only a small portion of his book but he read with confidence and he spoke loud enough for everyone to hear him. At the end of his reading, Aidan was met with a number of questions as to how the book continues. Aidan did his best to answer questions and suggested that this book would make a good addition to anyone’s library.
