The Pledge of Allegiance has been recited for years, but how many truly know its meaning? This lesson allows our student citizens a chance to learn and appreciate the pledge, as they understand the meaning behind it.
To help develop independent readers, we need to make sure our students are able to identify books they can read independently. Teaching students to pick "just right" books helps them develop reading fluency by reading books at their level.
After independent reading, have students record and reflect. Young readers will demonstrate their ability to summarize and respond to their reading, and a log is a fun way for them to track their progress. Make copies of this log to use again and again!
