we have regular “book time” each day after we’re done cleaning up. as soon as cleaning up is finished (or not constructive and there isn’t much left!), i’ll sing: if you’re done cleaning up, then go sit down and find a book to look at.
after their own “book time” we transition to “story time” when i read aloud to them. i’ll do this in another area of the room so that children have space and time to finish looking at their own books. children are invited to join us when they are ready (which is usually right away!).
