Sometimes the most teachable moments come from a moment, someone’s interjection, a current event, or…a book.
We have our students read daily because, let’s face it, students don’t do it at home. What we discovered was that we needed some accountability. Yes…yes…we get it. Sometimes students need to read just for fun. We definitely allow that. However, we found that doing this daily led to some laziness on the part of students. These activities will hopefully help with that. This product will give teachers a chance to set a purpose, even for a student’s independent reading. These activities are also great to use with classroom read alouds or as small group work. They can also be used during guided reading for alternative grades from tests. This will allow for multiple learning styles to gain knowledge in the very best ways they can!
