Gillispie “Gem” of the Week

Students in Mrs. Shemanski’s Grade 1 classroom achieved a reading milestone today by reading independently, quietly, and without interruption for 20 minutes. Students have been exploring the concept of stamina–by comparing the stamina needed for running and swimming to that needed for reading and writing–since the beginning of the year. The children are reading from their individualized book bags, which were stocked according to the results of their one-on-one Fountas and Pinnell assessments to ensure “just right” learning.
