Guided reading can sometimes be quite interesting.
I encourage children to read in an accent whenever possible. (Ok, I do not encourage this. It just happened on its own.)
it was brilliant. It was something.
A child in my group was not paying any attention. At all. He suddenly saw that everyone else had been rewarded for be on task and following directions. He must have thought, “Oh, I’d better read this so I can get a sticker too”.
So he quickly pointed at the title of this book, and pointing carefully at each word, (mis)read the title: “I can’t read.”
This is the book cover and the title he was reading. So I guess in summary, “nope, you sure can’t.” Let’s work on that this year in kindergarten.
