This resource is a free look into my First 21 Days of Reading instruction for grades K-5. The beginning of the year can be a balancing act of trying to establish routines, front-load the learning you are going to be doing the rest of the year and getting to know this new class of learners. Make it easy on yourself and use this resource to guide your reading instruction. Quality anchor charts and lessons are included in the full resource available at https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-First-21-Days-3158921. You simply add an interactive read aloud each day and provide students with independent reading time, with the goal of building up reading stamina so that you can call reading groups. Thank you and, as always, Blessings!
