PRODUCT DESCRIPTION


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As you may know, evolving standards have greatly increased the level of what we expect our students to do related to independent reading and reader's workshop. What some people don't consider is that we often do so much WITH our students one-on-one and in small groups, that they struggle to work on their own.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This resource is geared toward helping teachers "teach" students how to be better independent readers. It addresses everything from introducing genres to picking good fit books to setting goals and monitoring behaviors during independent reading time. Curious? Make sure you check out the preview to see all that you get!

What IS included?

*Suggestions for lessons to start the year to build better independent reading
*Genre resources and posters (2 different color/font options)
*Photos with ideas to build excitement for reading including links to more information
*Reading surveys
*Reading goal sheets
*“What is a good reader?” prompts
*“What is a good reader?” self-assessments
*Books I want to read list
*My favorite books list
*How to pick a “just right” book poster and bookmarks
*Mini "Me as a reader" posters to go with the checklists!
*Explanations for all of it!

and more!

If you feel like you need a little "something" to help kick off your year on the right foot where students learn good independent reading habits and behaviors, this might help you out! It is geared for grades 3-6--but I am confident that grade 2 teachers can use a great deal of it as well. The last page of the resource also mentions several other resources in my store that can support independent reading in your classroom!

I encourage you to download the preview so you can see exactly what you get as you think about starting your year off in an organized way.
