This Strong Reader pack is a great resource for your beginning readers and fits perfectly into your Reader's Workshop routine!
The pack includes:
- The Strong Reader Chant (original poem)
- Reading Strategy Star (color & BW)
- Anchor Charts (color & BW)
- Strategy Cards
This is how I use these strong reader resources:
The Strong Reader Chant is a fun way to send off your little readers after a mini-lesson. The students add motions and enjoy chanting this poem every single day!
Once each reading strategy is taught, the Reading Strategy Star is given to each student to keep in their independent book baggie/box for reference. I like to connect the anchor charts with yarn (or rings) as each strategy is taught and modeled. I focused on one strategy a week with my first graders at the beginning of the year. The connected anchor charts, hanging from the ceiling, are a great classroom display for daily reference.
As each strategy is taught, students are given the smaller strategy card to keep in their book baggie/box. Students can make tally marks on the back of the card for every time they use the strategy during that first teaching week. These can be collected on a ring for students to refer to during independent reading or even sent home to be used as a reference.
I hope you find this Strong Reader Strategy Pack useful in teaching your beginning readers to be strategic! Enjoy!
