This week we had Matthew Smith join us for Secret Reader he read us 3 great books all with Owls in them! He let us vote on which one we read first and we chose The Owl and the Pussy Cat Thanks Matthew!
This book is great. It is an old Nursery Rhyme and it had some really great new words, like shilling and pound. We talked about that those are types of money.
Matthew also read The Owl and the Woodpecker this book had amazing illustrations!
Listening to adults read fluently is a great way to learn how reading should sound. Another great way to learn to read fluently is partner reading with expression. We have been loving the Piggy and Gerald books by Mo Willems and last Friday Tarra and Charlotte M. Shared their amazing fluent reading of the story My Friend is Sad with us! Great job girls!
