One of my goals with my struggling readers is to be as consistent as possible. Normally I’m pretty good at honouring this goal. Yet lately my schedule and my days have been a little hectic. I’ve been away a couple of days, and when I have been at school a few issues surfaced that demanded my immediate attention.
When my little readers arrive at my office door, bookbags in hand, and they realize that I’m busy, their shoulders tend to sag. And on Friday when I went into a grade one class to ask the students if they wanted to read with me that afternoon (since I missed their morning time), it was art class. Both students chose to read.
These kids are doing their part: I will keep trying to do mine!
