As first grade readers in our NEW third unit of study, we have important jobs! We need to read harder and harder books! And we have been learning that there is something even more special about having reading jobs: WE ARE THE BOSS! WE’RE in charge of our own reading, not anyone else!
On Monday we put our hands up--and got ready to work! We learned that when readers are the boss of their reading, one of their jobs is to STOP at the first sign of trouble. Then they say, “I can solve this! I can try something, using all that I know.”
