Each year, my students come into grade 5 asking if it's okay to read a book not at their level or if it counts as reading if they are reading something other than a book. I created these posters to remind my students (and yours!) what rights readers have. Besides having the right to ask for help, they have the right to quit books they don't love, use tools to help them read and read anywhere that is comfy!
I established 10 reader's rights and then created three versions of each poster. One simply states the right of the reader (perfect for older grades). The second version includes some additional text on each poster to prompt reflection and guide students to a greater understanding of what the right relates to (perfect for middle grades) and the last version includes illustrations related to the right (perfect for younger grades).
Along with using this as a great literacy bulletin board, teachers could also have students use this as an on-going reflection piece. Provide students with a post-it and have them write their name on it and place it on the poster that they feel they want to work on. What a great (and quick!) visual for teachers to use to see where their readers are.
