Reading Comprehension study

The finished product.

The finished product.

After being "thrown" into a kindergarten summer reading class (after teaching 4 and 5 grade for 5 years) I was scared... really scared.

But the first place I thought to look for ideas and tips was this website!

I had signed up for the newsletter a couple of years ago and remember recently reading some great ideas for guided reading in the April 30, 2010 newsletter.

I used the chart paper book study activity with my little cherubs and I must say, the lessons went amazingly well!

The best part?

On day 4, when I was just getting to the "what did we learn" section, it was the very same day that school administrators were using our summer school site as a practice area for the new evaluation tool!

They came in just as I was re-reading the story and reviewing all of the sections, and introducing the final activity.

I was thrilled when the 6, yes 6 principals walked into my room to observe my lesson, because I knew that this activity had been a huge success thus far.

Although we weren't initially supposed to get any feedback from these mock evaluations, but I happened to run into 3 of these administrators after school that day and they all gave me rave reviews.

Thank you for posting this, and so many other ideas on your site! Without you, I may not have survived this kinder experience.
