Getting Read to Self Started

I love read to self! There is nothing more fun than creating an environment where children are excited about books, have their favorite few in a box and love to curl up with them on a daily basis. We have been working on building our stamina for "reading" books and talking about how if we can't read the words, we can read the pictures, or retell stories that we know well. Read to self is one of my favorite times of the day. I love looking around room at all my kiddos "reading" books. Here are the books that I have been reading to motivate my little bookworms...

  4. So excited to see daily 5 in kindergarten now that I have been moved from 1st to k. I received a Versitile Blogger Award and wanted to pass it on to you. Thanks for being an inspiration.

  5. Where did you get the great picture cards to go along with your poster? I would love to have these to go with my station in my first grade classroom. I think this is a great visual for my firsties! I love so much on your site I could sit and go through it for hours!!!

    1. I got the posters for free here:
      I reduced the size when I printed them.

  6. Awesome! Thank you so much! I just downloaded them and can't wait to print and laminate them! They will come in handy this year!! Many thanks!
