Each day after the children return from lunch, they will have time to read a book of their choice. Once they have completed their book, they are able to reflect about their book in their Teddy Bear Journal. This book serves as a reading response book.

This teacher made book consists of graphic organizers that help to assess the childrens comprehension of the story that they completed. The children also have an opportunity to create an illustration that depicts their favorite part of the story.
