Flashlight Friday…why not?

We LOVE reading in our class. We are always eager to squeeze in any extra time to read. Last Friday, we held our first Flashlight Friday where students brought in a flashlight and found a quiet spot to read in the class. The lights went out and the blinds were closed. You couldn’t hear a pin drop. They were amazing readers.

Check out our quick video of what it looked like 🙂

Our first Flashlight Friday was such a success, we’ll definitely do more!
