Each student in my classroom has their own book box.  It is full of books they have chosen to read.  It also has a bag with "good fit" books in it.  This means they can read almost all the words in those books so they place them in the bag.  The other books are ones they are trying to read or they are reading the pictures.  They weekly get the opportunity to "book shop" in our classroom library to exchange any books they are finished reading.  This is important because having a new supply weekly helps them improve their  decoding and comprehension skills.  We have been timing our reading stamina and can read for a total of 23 minutes.  Our goal is to reach 45 minutes by the end of the year. I have no doubt they can achieve this reading goal!
