I am here today to tell you all about how I help my advanced readers to dig deeper into books independently!
I have a small group of about 4 kiddos who have consistently been reading above grade level all year. They cam to me already proficient at decoding and reading for meaning. In January, I decided it would be a great time to get them started in a little book club. (This is just what I call it because it’s easy for my kids to understand the terminology. And they were super excited about it being a ‘club’. You can call it anything you want to! Book club, literacy circle, literacy club, book talk, etc.)
Hey friends! I am linking up with Miss DeCarbo for another installment of Wordless Wednesday!

During Guided Reading, how do you keep your other kiddos from coming up to you?
I wear this pretty little princess crown to give them a visual reminder that I am not to be bothered. The first day I whipped it out, we had a chat about how when someone is working with me it is very important and that we really can’t be bothered.
