Product Description
Struggling readers need to know why reading matters...why they should care. Even advanced teens and tweens need to be reminded of why they should make time in their busy schedules for reading. You can help students understand all of the benefits of being literate in a concrete, explicit manner. Set the inspirational tone for your classroom reading culture using these reading posters and extension activities.

The following resources are included in this product:

- 20 posters available in three different versions
- The reader in me reflection activity, which encourages students to think about their reading habits, interests, personality, and goals
- A reading mood board assignment intended to help students define themselves as readers and to identify elements that inspire them to read
- A simple "Why read?" think and research activity with an optional writing extension prompt
- A "Why read?" reference fact sheet for students that lists 18 benefits of reading and provides short explanations for each
- Suggested use and order

Use these reading posters and extension activities at the beginning of the school year, the start of a new semester, or before a reading unit. The style and content of these reading activities and posters make them fitting for middle school and high school students, grades 6 through 10. While you can use these reading teaching materials with all levels of learners, it suits struggling readers who need a little extra motivation and busy teens who "don't have time to read" especially well.

***This lesson is available as part of a larger independent reading bundle.
