They did so well, I thought I'd make the same offer to my third reading group. This group is on a slightly higher level. I follow the same procedure with them when reading a book. First chorally, then independently. This group is a little more enthusiastic in their reading (and louder). :)
The title is: The Best Web of All.
Awesome job, Soldiers!
After reading the book, they traded it in for 2 new books for their 'book bags'. Book bags are just that- gallon sized baggies with books in them. My students are responsible for keeping up with the bags and the books in them. Students also make their own flash cards of the vocabulary words from the stories so they can practice them at their seats.
Team 3 received a special deal today- if they reread the books from their bags at their seats and answer the questions from the back of the books, they will receive 5 checks on their Star Papers tomorrow! (Star Papers are what they use to buy my books on Fridays.)
We'll see who takes me up on my deal tomorrow!
