Class Read-In

After reading a blog post by Pernille Ripp about adding fun back into our classroom last week, I stopped and asked the class, what are we looking forward to this week? That's when we came up with the Read-In.  

Last Friday, we set aside the entire class period to celebrate reading.  Students brought in blankets, pillows, and stuffed animals, and we read!  We had independent reading, a book sharing time, and we started our new read aloud, Fish in a Tree.

During our sharing time, our school librarian, Mrs. Neal, joined us to eat snacks, give a couple of book talks, and listen to the students swap book recommendations.  Take a look at our festivities below:
