With our Engaging Reading Curriculum, we revisit the same book over a 5 day period.  Each day, we dig a little deeper into the text.  So it is important we select a book that engages students.  LOOK at this illustration!  That frog’s face kills me every time!

And this photo came from a TK classroom.  LOVE!  We need to remind ourselves that the power in these interactive reading units is in the discussions students have about the book. We want students to activate those various reading comprehension strategies.   Remember, the person doing the most talking is the person who is learning.
