I loved hearing their excitement as they recommended a book to a classmate, bragged about the number of books they read during our Read-In, and told me their favorite details from their books. The students are in my six reading intervention classes. They don't usually list reading as their favorite activity. Yet, there they were enjoying books!
Many of the kids commented about how relaxing the time the read-in was. It was like they suddenly discovered READING! I encouraged them to find a book and have their very own read-in at home.
I thought I'd share a few photos. You might recognize some of these books!
Another fun holiday activity this week was watching my granddaughter, Evie, decorate her Christmas tree. All the decorations ended up on one side, but it was the most beautiful tree I've ever seen. Then we baked cookies!
