The Roarin' Reader program, is a weekly reading program to not only facilitate in your classroom, but for students to continue to practise at home.
Every week I introduce a new poem to the class that is then placed in their Roarin' Reader duotang/folder for them to practise at home with their families. The poems also come with an activity that is to be completed at home with assistance, if needed.
We read the poems daily, so that way by the time the students take home the Roarin' Reader, they are already familiar with the text.
Rereading familiar texts several times is a good way of reinforcing reading strategies in young children and also helps students to think of himself/herself as a reader!
