After lunch everyday in my classroom, we read silently for 20 minutes. By this time of the year in Grade Two, most of the kids are able to read many of the books in my classroom library and it is the most rewarding feeling to see them intently concentrating, captivated by whatever it is they are reading.

Little eight year old boys are funny....ever since I picked up a set of Matchbox cars for the classroom months ago, this is all they ever want to play with (I've had to hide it several times to give the cars a rest) and it really only ever involves crashing them into one another. And if the car breaks...even better.
