The children are welcome to change their reading book as often as they like but I would ask that you sign the reading record book when they have read to you or to themselves at home.
We have a reading session every day where the children take part in a variety of reading activities one of which includes Guided Reading with me. Here we focus on using the skills needed to decode words as well as developing comprehension skills.
