Here We Go!

By Rieker, Annetta

Here We Go!

     As we make the transition from summer months to the fall season we are fully embraced in our daily schedule and routines.  The students in Mrs. Rieker’s room have been working very hard at building up their reading and writing stamina.

     Stamina as defined by students in Mrs. Rieker’s class:

  • “Doing something you like as long as you can.  If you do it really long your good at it!”  Jonny Martin
  • “You have to read the whole time!” Dain Fraizer
  • “You can’t get up or you will break your stamina.”  Sydney Hanke 


All 1st graders in the room started their reading stamina at 5 minutes and are now reading 20 minutes daily.  If you walk into the room during our reading and writing block you may hear students saying things like:

  • I added to my pictures.
  • I added to my words.
  • I’m ready to start a new piece of writing.
  • I heard you read…
  • I like this book because…
  • This book is a good fit for me!


It is so awesome to see the wonderful things 1st graders can and aspire to do.  We can’t wait to see where all of our hard work takes us!
