As a vision therapist and one who studies how students learn, my experience has taught me that if a student can not make their eyes work together and move across a page at the same time they will always have a hard time reading. No amount of reading or re-reading will help them until they can develop better eye tracking skills.
That is why I want every teacher to understand the importance of eye tracking and how it can effect reading.
I have put together this unit not only to teach you the teacher, but also to get your students’ eyes ready for reading.
You will take these exercises into our classroom, tackle it, use it, and have great readers at the end of the year.
I have proven exercise and daily tasks for you to do with individual students, send home, or do as a classroom. These should be used at RTI and Reading resource rooms.
I use these exercises in my tutor program before we go to our academic work. I believe that these processes are what really help students to succeed in reading. Stay tuned for the next level.
