We are Avid Readers

Students are socializing around books through working with many clubmates and by having many opportunities to read together and to share favorite books with each other. They are part of a community that together reads poems, songs, and books and has extended conversations about these, developing looking, listening, and thinking skills in the process. In this unit, our students are engaging in playful interactions, with reading now a part of this play. As they engage in “reading playdates,” mirroring the playdates that many of them have in their out-of-school lives, students try out and even invent fun literacy things to do with their friends. ,
