Getting in our reading groove

Today, we started our Bloom's Taxonomy  Read Aloud time. 

I'm starting with one of my favorite series....

This is just the cutest pig ever!!

I read out loud for about 10-15 minutes, then I choose a stick (it has their number on it.) That student then picks ONE M&M.

(I usually use Skittles, because I tend to eat the M& I just use the brown as the purple for the posters...since M&Ms don't make a purpe)

Whatever color they pick, that's the level of question they get. They don't know they are levels. But I do. Sneaky, sneaky!

If they get the answer correct, or are pretty close, then they get 2 more M&Ms, whatever color of their choice. It's amazing what they do for Next week, I'll be introducing the writing portion of the pack, which they'll write in their Reader's Notebook.

I'm excited to start the next part to the pack! 

Check out this pack at any of my stores:

Speaking of Readers', we did our first entry!

We've been reading Chrysanthemum

I got Michelle's pack (from Teach123), it's her Chrysanthemum Sentence Shuffle pack. We're doing the sentence shuffle tomorrow, but today, we did the reading flaps in our Readers' Notebooks. They did great!

How's getting into the groove going in your school?? We haven't as much gotten in our groove, BUT as soon as we do, we're going to have to add in our mandatory 30 minute intervention block, which takes away some of my extra reading time I like to do. BOO! Oh well. What can you do? (beside!)

Thank you for the shout out! I love how you incorporated food and learning. What a creative way to pick the level of question. I am sharing this with my FB followers.

This is such a great idea. I wonder how I could use it for TK.

We have a 30 min intervention block too. Would you be willing to post a copy of how you schedule your day?
