I do a "reading baggy" each night (Mon-Thurs). Mon and Tues each student has the same decodable reader from our reading series. Wed and Thurs students have other books, such as leveled readers from our old series or books they have read in guided reading group. I am wondering how other first grade teachers structure their take home reading program. Do you (or a volunteer) listen to each child read the books they take home? Do they take them home for one night or more? One year, I gave them a book to read the whole week to practice fluency, but I don't think all parents understood the purpose of rereading. This way works better for now, b/c the students know to return the book each day.
