What do rockin' readers do?
This is a nifty booklet/portable anchor chart to compliment your reading habits mini-lessons. After each lesson, I have students in my Third Grade class write the habit and draw a picture to illustrate what this habit looks like in our classroom. Sometimes I have even had the students write the habits in cursive writing, just to practice that skill as well (we still teach cursive in Ontario).
This booklet is an 8 1/2 by 11 inch page folded in half and copied on both sides. You can print out as many of the "interior pages" as needed to suit the number of mini-lesson or strategies you in intend to cover. To assemble the booklet, you'll need one of those long-arm staplers.
We spend about six weeks talking about what rockin’ readers do and this booklet becomes a great text for review and reinforcement of good reading habits.
Some of the habits I like to cover are:
rockin’ readers make connections while they read
rockin’ readers make a movie in their minds while they read
rockin’ readers buzz with other readers about books
rockin’ readers read a variety of texts
rockin’ readers keep a record of their reading
rockin’ readers ask questions about the text
rockin’ readers choose books at their levels
rockin’ readers use strategies for determining unfamiliar words
rockin’ readers make predictions about the text
rockin’ readers use their schema and text clues to infer
Please note, this product is two pages long and does not include reading instruction or pages to reflect the specific strategies I've mentioned above.
