In reading our focus was on learning phonics/decoding strategies. We practiced by reading "My Best Friend" by Pat Hutchins. After reading we worked a little on retelling the story. Mainly looking at being able to recall events that occurred during the middle and end of the story. We continued the "best friend" theme and read "YOU WILL BE MY FRIEND!" by Peter Brown later in the day.
We also read "Miss Mingo and the Fire Drill" by Jamie Harper and made a point to practice our own emergency procedures. The students did a great job. What a great second day of first grade!!
