Today I sat with a student and listened to him read. Was a little frustrating because he wouldn't try to sound out any words he didn't know, but I was there to guide him.
Today I helped the 5th graders make inferences from clues they were given in class. Some of the kids struggled more than others, but it was very rewarding to see the students get excited when they solved a case.
Today I was in Mrs. Evans class at the Middle School. I listened to one of the fifth graders read and helped him with fluency and sounding out new or difficult words. Class was fun, Mrs. Evans read an interesting book to the classroom and when the bell rang for break, every fifth grader in the classroom pulled out an iPhone. Oh, how times have changed.
