The Magic Reading Finger is a fun and effective way to help beginning readers get their mouths ready to make the sounds and read the words their fingers point to and practice covering chucks of words to help decode.
This poem explains how to use Magic Reading Fingers. There are 3 versions of the poem- one with a green witch finger graphic (my personal favorite and students love to wear them), one with a mickey pointer hand graphic, and one with no graphic. Each version is in one page and half page form.
I wrote this poem to introduce students to the Magic Reading Finger, and as a fun explanation for parents when I send home reading fingers for students to use.
I hope this rhyming poem helps your students learn to read!
*Fingers not included :-)
