As we near the end of the school year our kindergarteners have been working on becoming independent readers and learning about elements of a story. We read one of our Read On Your Own decodable book called Max and Quin. This story had words that students could easily decode as well as the sight words we’ve been learning throughout the week. In the story there are two characters that have distinct characteristics.
Students got into their reading partners and read the book to each other. Then they picked a character (either Max or Quin) and described a character trait. They were able to use the text to find evidence of their findings.
