One of the goals I want for my first grader this year is to read read read! During kindergarten our focus was learning to read. This year I want to nurture reading comprehension and foster a general love of reading. My plan to accomplish this is to read lots of books from a variety of genres. We make weekly trips to our local library where we load up on all types of books. Some are books that I read aloud others are for independent reading time.
Recently I have found a series that my son really loves. Elephant and Piggie, the books are very funny and my son loves reading and rereading the books.
