Reading Independence & Booklists
So why am I doing this?
1. To make her an independent learner.
2. To guide her reading selection.
3. To teach her responsibility.
4. It's something she is excited to do.
What will she read?
I'm still narrowing it down. I want to preview each book to make sure it will be a good fit and doesn't have any surprises! The books that she doesn't have assigned as independent reading will still probably find their from the library to our mantel.
