I have 24 5th graders. In the county in which I teach it is mandated that the last 30 minutes of the day is called DEAR time (Drop Everything And Read). The kids are suppose to read for the last 25 to 30 minutes of each school day. The unfortunate thing is that out of my 24 students I have about 2 who will actually pull out a book and read. The rest do not like to read even though they have I also have a party for those students who met their Accelerated Reader Point goals each quarter. These students can be very distracting to the other students and I make them get out a book to read but you know of course they are not reading because I am continuously having to call them down. Any suggestions?????
