Today, I asked the students to read a bee book after they finished their word sort. One of my boys, let's call him Honest One, told me he forgot what a responsible reader was.
It's funny because I haven't really told them the explanation of responsible...I just use the word. But the meaning will come!
I watched him walk around the back of the room. He walked up to another student and asked her, "Do you know what a responsible reader is?"
I was laughing too hard to hear her response.
I think I'll have a lot of fun with this class!
