Reader’s Workshop/Shared Reading
While the children ate their fruit we read our shared reading text for this week, The Smartest Giant in Town by Julia Donaldson.
While reading we modeled the reading strategy, ‘Skippy Frog’ to the children.
After children were paired with a partner to apply this reading strategy during Come Read with Me.
