UNDERSTANDING: According to Gambrell (1996) children that were allowed personal choice in book selection, put significantly more effort into completing and understanding their text. In these cases choice leads to motivation for reading, and consequently increased literacy scores. This literacy centre provides children with a comfortable and safe environment to explore a wide selection of pre-approved books.
Birthday board I made for my kiddos. I downloaded the months off of Teachers Pay Teachers and used one of my fonts on Word to print out the word "birthday." The parents and kids love the new display for the classroom :)
