The Reading Experiment is Working!

Last week I posted about how we are trying a little experiment with Camille's independent reading, just to recap - I took 10 books from our shelves and wrapped the group of 10 books in ribbon and told her to read 2 a day. This worked beautifully! She read all 10 books, did a bibliography page which includes Date Read, Title, Author and Favorite Character for each book and when we went to the library Friday she wanted to choose 10 books for this week! I'm only using the handwriting paper we already have and writing Date, Title, Author and Favorite Character- we bought 1000 sheets of handwriting paper at the beginning of first grade and have hardly made a dent in it!

This week she'll read:

  1. Ten Dirty Pigs by Carol Roth
  2. Panda Bear, Panda Bear, What do you see? by Bill Martin Jr.
  3. Good Night, Good Knight by Shelley Moore Thomas
  4. Buffalo Bill and the Pony Express by Eleanor Coerr
  5. Madelline's Rescue by Ludwig Bemelmans
  6. Woodpecker Forest by Tejima
  7. First Delights: A Book about the Five Senses by Tasha Taylor
  8. Mr. Putter & Tabby Catch the Cold by Cynthia Rylant
  9. A Weed is a Seed by Ferida Wolff
  10. The Library by Sarah Stewart
She gets to choose each day what ones she'll read. Next week, we'll go back to our home library books but I think this is a success if she's excited to check books out from the library to read!!! Next step is getting her own library card- I may make this a reward for reading 50 books.

Did you type your bibliography page? Is it one page for each book?
