I used to be concerned about taking class time for reading, but considering the demands on kids' time now I feel quite justified in allowing 10 minutes per day for my freshmen to engage in reading. They really like it and it allows me to do the adminstrivia. Every 3 weeks there is some sort of reporting procedure. I have a variety of activities which I ask them to do. It varies each time.

My response: What a WONDERFUL idea! How much time do you meet with your students each day? Right now I use the first five to ten minutes working on Daily Oral Language, and that only leaves about 45 minutes to do other work with the students.

What type of reporting procedure do you use? What type of activities?
