The joy and hardships of a kindergarten and first grade teacher are teaching learners to read. It’s such a huge and challenging task. However, when you see the growth of a reader in just a few short months, it’s so rewarding. When I was in the classroom, I constantly modeled what good readers do. And it’s something that has to be modeled constantly as they grow as readers.

I came across a blog written several years ago that had the same steps for readers. Dr. Jean shares a fun song that ties in with these steps to good reading. It’s a great song that will keep your students singing throughout the year.

With a house of boys (and a girl!), I wanted to bring in a fun way to remind Grayson of what good readers do. He loves tools just like his dad, so I thought this would be perfect.

If you want a smaller option to send home with your students, I created a bookmark similar to these steps that my students always loved!

With these simple, but effective steps, your students will be using these strategies like a champ when they learn to read!
