Cram your "reading calendar" where the sun don't shine.

Reading show and tell...great idea!
That's a really good idea to have a reading show and tell. I didn't even think of that! I may just implement that in my room. Then we can keep a class log of what we're reading.

Hi teach2inspire. You sound like a teacher that would win my heart.

I'm having some computer problems so I don't get there often and can't post much but.....

We reached a compromise of sorts with Mo's teacher. At our conference we discussed that Mo is being read to - she knew this because of his vocabulary (thank you, Thomas the Train, you "clever" and "put upon" engine). As long as he makes an attempt at the calendar he's good.

Usually his looks something like this:

Monday -- The Hello Goodbye Window, et. al.
Tuesday -- The Hello Goodbye Window, et. al.
Wednesday -- The Hello Goodbye Window, et. al.
Thursday -- Navy Combat Pilots, Trap Door Spiders, The Hello Goodby Window

We actually do read a lot besides The Hello Goodbye Window - obituaries are a current favorite. The weather page is always high on the list. I make him write some other stuff down for a least one day but without fail we do read The Hello Goodbye Window at least once a day. Usually we read it many times a day.

She's being pretty flexible with us and I so appreciate that.

Nice to hear it was resolved
I'm glad you were able to resolve this with her. I love that you and your son read everything together! I've always told my students that they could read anything, including the backs of cereal boxes, as long as they read. They thought I was funny, but I was serious. Smile
This is a great way for them to see how reading and writing translate to the "real world."
Anyway, I wish your son success. I'm sure he will grow up to be an excellent reader!
