I incorporated a DEAR program with my fifth grade classes for years. They loved it. I started this the first week of school and did it every week thereafter. I would even sit at a desk and read a book. This was pure recreational The students looked forward to this. At times, I would do a Read Aloud or have them sit in a comfortable spot. My favorite book of all time. My Side of The Mountain. Good memories
