I believe that ALL children can learn to read and can share a LOVE of reading and learning for LIFE!! My role is to develop, foster and expand that love of reading in all content areas and especially equip them with the strategies to be successful, life-long readers and learners!
The 6 components of Reading Instruction
1-Phonemic Awareness (knowing that letters make sounds) Our class has this mastered! We are working on the remaining 4 components
2-Phonological Application (understanding and applying the predictable patterns of letters and sounds)
6- Speaking, Listening and Viewing
The first (top) webmix is WEBSITES we use often for Reading instruction. The second webmix (bottom) is of Reading Apps for the Ipad which we use in our Daily 5/CAFE instruction. Under both of these webmixes is a link with information on the Reading Workshop method.
We use the CAFE and DAILY 5 structures within our Reading Workshop so students have authentic literacy experiences and choice. Here are a few snap shots of Daily 5 in action.
