My class got to take home their own chihuahua home. They will begin to feed him our decodable books weekly. This will build them a very nice reading library to read from nightly. Practice makes perfect and this sure is true for first grade readers.
We have also been learning about nouns and characters from our stories. The class made the connection that all characters and stettings from stories are NOUNS. We celebrated this fact by drawing some of our favorite characters on the back of our envelope. They were so proud of their character nouns they wanted to share them with our blog readers. Enjoy!
