Silent/ Independent Reading
Make sure to dedicate time for silent/independent each day and offer a minimum of 20 minutes of independent reading a day. Keep the time sacred- make sure it happens every day
Start by building stamina- start with 2 minutes a day, work up to the 20 minutes, celebrate each minute they read silently, make it a game to read silently longer
In checking comprehension ( you don't have to if they are enjoying themselves) ask questions about what they like about the books, least favorite thing, funny thing they read, ask about favorite character
Model silent reading so they see you as a reader that enjoys independent reading time
- Walkie use-call people direct as much as possible & make sure volume is turned up
- Communicate with classroom staff when you need to be out sick, put into AESOP (See Dana Trattles if you need assistance)
- Take your lunch breaks! Ask for help if it becomes a problem
- Support each other but know when it is time to tap out
- Share your daily successes
- Stay positive! We are off to an amazing start
Youtube Video: Don't let me down!
Here is a video that reminded me of you all. We are all working hard, are staying positive, and doing what's best for kids everyday. As time passes, students begin to demonstrate more behaviors and things get difficult. Remember to lean on each other Continue to use active supervision and your best de-escalation strategies. Know when it's time to "tap out." We got this!
