The Top 3 Prompts for Beginning Readers!

Are you teaching emergent readers the very basics of reading, and overwhelmed by the sea of reading prompts to choose from?

The top three reading prompts for beginning readers are the foundation of what good readers do.

Based on the three sources of information readers use and / or neglect, meaning, structure and visual information, The top 3 prompts for beginning readers are the prompts that all others stem from. Running records are analysed according to these three basic sources of information, giving teachers an indication of where further prompting is needed.

Thank you in advance, to those of you who generously take the time to leave feedback.
