Product Description

Encouragement Mindset Reader explains to students what National Encouragement Day is and when it is recognized. This early fluent printable reader gives children ideas for encouragement.

Optional extension activities were created for vocabulary focus, asking and answering questions about nonfiction text, illustrations increase meaning, and author's purpose. These pages can be eliminated and the early fluent reader can be used alone.

Information Text Standards Addressed If Chosen:

RI. 1 Asking and answering questions

RI. 4 Vocabulary

RI. 6 Author's Purpose

RI. 7 Illustrations

The set includes

• the National Day recognition and who is responsible for this National Day

• an explanation of Encouragement Day

• suggestions for how to be encouraging on this day and every day

• a focus on encouraging mindset

• understanding key vocabulary and phrases {Encouragement Day, encouraging, feelings, friendly, kind, supportive}

• asking and answering questions

• creating illustrations to help bring meaning to the words in the text

• exposure to why the author makes decisions in writing

Parts of the book have the language of an informational text {factual and how-to} and other parts are opinionated and appeal to the emotions {persuasive}. If you're currently working on an informational or persuasive reading/writing unit of study, this little text is a nice connection. Idea: Students can research additional information and add "Wow Facts" or "Did You Know" bubbles to certain pages in the book.

Directions: Cut the pages in half, assemble, and staple. Allow some time for coloring and illustrating. Use during shared reading or small group reading instruction. Teach the key vocabulary and let the children write definitions in their own words and/or draw pictures to show the meaning of the words. Also, allow students to ask and answer questions about the text. Reread individually or in pairs.
