Are you looking for new ideas to improve your students reading skills? I have compiled some free samples that you can try.
I have written several posts about my morning message system that is a spiral review of important reading skills. It is also differentiated which works great when your class includes a wide variety of levels.
Post #1: My morning routine which includes management tips.
Post #2: Hectic schedule this year? Set up morning messages as a writing center. This post includes tips.
Post #3: Improve your students’ handwriting with morning messages.
I have some samples that you can try.
Listening and following directions is so important. The skill can impact many different areas at school . . . behavior, academic, making friends, and more. One of my favorite ways to strengthen this skill is with “Listen & Draw”. Students love it because they are drawing. They think it is art and fun! I loved it because my class was quiet!
Save some of these to show parents at conference or use for R.T.I. documentation.
