Independent Daily Reading

October 25, 2014

Students That Achieve READ, READ, READ!


It's no secret that reading everyday is important in developing essential reading skills that will lead to overall academic success.  At Corning Elementary, we take this very seriously!  Our theme for the year, "Students That Achieve READ, READ, READ" is addressed each day in the Intermediate classrooms during 30 minutes of IDR time (Independent Daily Reading).  Students have been instructed on how to find their "just right" book early on in the year.  This "just right" book is one that not only interest the student, but can also be read independently.  Students then conference with the teacher and write a reader response for each book.  Reader responses allow the students the opportunity to share what they learned about the plot of their stories and practice key skills taught during the whole group reading instruction.  Intermediate students are challenged to read 40 books throughout the year (10 per quarter).  Each classroom has a chart that students can record their completed books, as well as, a special recording chart in Ms. Sampson's room, our Title 1 teacher.  To praise and reward those making their quarterly goal, a special celebration was shared with Ms. Sampson.  We had 6 students that reached the 10 book goal for first quarter.  Way to go Rebecca Inman, Jake Oathoudt, Blake Thomas, Kayla Mitchell, Adam Timmerman, and Camryn Johnston.
