We tried something new in room 109. We shut off the lights, found a quiet spot in the classroom with 3-4 books and read them with little flashlights! The purpose of this activity was not only to get students excited about reading independently but to also work on their reading stamina. We had some left over snacks from IA Assessments that they also got to eat while they read.
The students did a fabulous job with staying on task. They asked if we could do Flashlight Friday again. It may just turn into a weekly activity!
