Reading Glasses: A Guided Reading Engagement Tool

Sometimes I’m a bit of a nerd. My husband smiles, shakes his head, and goes on. I’m so blessed that he loves me and puts up with my dorkiness!

I found the glasses at Hobby Lobby for $0.79. I knew I had to have them. I love pink and this pair of glasses just looked too cute! They are styrofoam so I’m sure they won’t lost forever. But hey! for $0.79, I was willing to take a risk!
I decided that I would wear them during guided reading time. I also found similar pairs for the kids in a package of 6. They are going to be our “reading glasses” as we read together. I think they’ll be a hit! I definitely think we’re going to have to have a “how we care for our glasses” mini-lesson so that they will make it the whole year. 🙂 I can’t wait to use them!!
