Here are the pictures from this week's junior high school first grade reading class. Here they are having a discussion about this week's reading. This week's reading was a very short article about The Trojan Room Coffee Pot at Cambridge University.
Here are the first graders taking a reading comprehension quiz.

This week, the first grade NELP students began reading about The Trojan Room Coffee Pot. Cambridge University's computer science laboratory, The Trojan Room, was home to one of the very first webcams in the world. The students rigged a camera to watch the coffee pot so they wouldn't have to leave their desk unnecessarily.
The second grade NELP students are reading about Matt Harding, creator of the now famous "Where the Hell is Matt" videos. Matt Harding gave up his job as a game designer to go travel around the world. He became famous for dancing in famous places, and now dances with hundreds of fans everywhere he goes.
The third grade NELP students are reading about William Kamkwamba, who at age 14 built a windmill to provide electricity for four lightbulbs and two radios in his hometown in Malawi.

I just finished grading the book reports for the second term. Some students did very well and I'm very pleased. However, some students gave me book reports that only covered the first chapter or two of their books.
In the same way that a drumstick isn't the same as a Christmas turkey, a book report over a couple of chapters is not the same as a book report about a whole book.
Outside reading is a VERY important part of the NELP class. Traditionally, the student who reads the most makes the most progress. This is because through reading, students can see language in action. Students should read books that they can understand, but which are a little challenging and give them opportunities to see new language and new forms.
I give my students class time to read during our Wednesday reading time, so I'm very surprised and disappointed that some of my NELP students are not reading up to their potential.
I'd like my students to be reading MORE, and where possible, I'd like my NELP parents to check on their students and see if the students are doing the reading that they need to do.
