Now that the Infants have started reading their class readers at home, are able to blend words and know a whole host of sight words, I thought it would be nice to spend some time making use of our class library.
The children are allowed to browse library books at lunchtime if it is raining but we don’t often get an opportunity to sit back, relax and enjoy a good book.
Therefore we are taking 5-10 minutes at the end of some of our days to Drop Everything And Read. Books allow a child’s imagination to run wild or gain new facts. They help us learn new words and create stories from beautiful illustrations.
Reading and time with books is invaluable and we are really enjoying this new initiative in Room 1 🙂
