I have prepared a set of rules for us to discuss as I intorduce a 'formal' quiet reading time into our morning school. We havent had this as a formal time before. The girls can chose any book they like for this reading time.
I am going to be setting a 40 book challenge for my 9 year old this year - more on that later :)
★ Our family sitting wherever they are comfortable, reading their book.
★ Staying still in one place ‘till reading time is up.
★ Choosing another book if you finish the one you are reading.
★ Using your ‘Strategies’ bookmark if you need help with a word.
★ When reading time is over, finding a good ‘stopping place’ in your book.
★ Using your bookmark to keep your place in your book.
★ Treating books nicely.
★ People putting their book away on their own shelf when Quiet reading time is over.
★ People reading to themselves in a quiet voice, or in silence.
★ Touching mummy on the arm, if you are stuck with a word & cannot work it out with your ‘Strategies’ bookmark.
