I’ve started reading chapter books to my kiddos during their snack time. When I first started they weren’t crazy about books with no pictures but they have slowly started telling me what they see in their minds as we are reading. Exactly what I wanted. The first chapter book I read was Pippy Longstockings. I only picked it because I remember how much I loved it. After retreading it with them, I probably won’t do it with my next class. The language was a little too “old”. Our second book is Beezus and Ramona. Much easier for them to follow plus I’ve noticed there are activities I can tie in with the book. This I am truly excited about.
