Students in Mrs. Shepard's 6th grade class are determining when reading is fantastic and what happens when reading goes terribly wrong for them. They were put into small groups and then as a whole group, they made a master list so they can use this to overcome some of the stumbling points of reading and how to focus on what is in their control. Some reasons of why reading is difficult include when they are distracted, when seating is uncomfortable or they are reading a book too hard for them. Some reasons of why reading is not positive include when they get to choose their book, they can reread a book and when they have a personal connection to the text. We are off to a great start this year.
