First Days of Reading: Mini-Lessons and Interactive Notebook Pages.
This is a great resource to add to any Reading Notebook Journal. The goal of The First Days of Reading is to establish classroom structure and the foundation for the habits we want readers to use throughout the year.
Keep in mind that initially, many of these daily activities will take considerable time to model and for students to learn. However, once this is accomplished these activities can be completed quickly allowing you time to address more content.
This resource is intended to be extended, condensed, or modified according to your students’ needs. Please continue to revisit and support all skills and concepts that are introduced in the first few weeks.
Updated with additional pages to include the following topics:
Building Reading Stamina, Visualizing, Inferring and Synthesizing
