While I LOVE coding text by using a heart for something you love and using a question mark for something you are confused about, I also thought… what do kids do that can make this stick a little more? So I thought about how much they love to text on the phone and then thought, why not use the codes for reading? I came up with using the texting abbreviations for reading that you will see in this FREE download. You can use these with your students and then come up with your own. Have fun!
