As part of our DAILY 5 students are expected to read aloud to a friend every literacy block. The behavior and expectations for successful Read to Someone are very explicit. Here we see two students showing a perfect example of sitting EEKK elbow to elbow, knee to knee.
I feel very much on the back foot with establishing and fixing these basic behavior patterns. Missing term 1 (due to maternity leave), has meant that I had to hit the floor running in term 2 and didn't have the luxury of time to help the students develop the right muscle memory.
This is an area I need to improve on in future and to find ways to help the current students revisit and practice correct expectations.
