A big shout out to Mike Peto and his blog that I personally visit about once a week as a resource. This article about Building a Class Library for Heritage Speakers was extremely helpful! He has tons of research and suggestions, and rather than paraphrase it here, I think you should just check out his blog!

1. I only do FVR with my 8th graders and my Heritage students.
2. On Mondays and Tuesdays, they come in and get their book. I set a timer and they read for 10 minutes while I take attendance and check- in homework.
3. When the timer goes off, they return their books to the designated spot, and we move on to the daily lesson.
(Note: For about the first month I just wanted them to get in the habit and enjoy reading, but this past week I started using a reading log from Mike Peto's site to hold them accountable. )
