Clip to ScrapBook #7

for continuing with the read aloud. We only have two teachers other than myself still doing it in our 3-5 grade classes and it breaks my heart.

When I moved up I was told “fifth graders won’t sit on a carpet” but I have found they are just big babies and they love it! Lakeside is right about giving the choice because I noticed this year some have preferred staying at their seats. I start them all on the carpet and then it casually becomes what they are comfortable with. I just make sure they know wherever they are they are listening but that would be a management thing. And TBH they all do because it truly is our favorite time of day!

As for books, igaboo8 hit the best ones. Christopher Paul Curtis’s Bud Not Buddy is good too!
