We've all seen these awesome Reading Strategies before.... but what I hadn't seen was actual Lessons & Activities to teach them to my students! So... here they are!
This unit is designed to be completed in a week. Each lesson has a direct-instruction mini-lesson component (usually
accompanied by a read aloud); a “teaching skill” lesson for shared practice, and an independent practice activity to re-inforce the skill. Lessons are very thoroughly explained!!!
Some examples of activities included are:
Flip the Dolphin vowel flipper
Stretchy Snake Making Words
Chunky Monkey - chunk the parts
Skippy Frog - cloze sentence activity in the pocket chart
Mini Book to review all strategies
(check the preview for more examples!!)
I’ve also added in my own set of posters & bookmarks so all of the characters match. PLUS... there is a Reading Strategies mini-book for students to make to help review all of the strategies after you are finished teaching them! I hope you’ll enjoy using these lessons to introduce & teach the “good reading strategies” to your students!
