I stumbled upon a fantastic, informative website.
But it’s more than just a website. It’s a movement.
This is what they say about themselves:
“We bring the best research-based strategies to teachers, parents, administrators, librarians, childcare providers, and anyone else involved in helping a young child become a strong, confident reader. Our goal is to bring the reading research to life — to spread the word about reading instruction and to present ‘what works’ in a way that parents and educators can understand and use.”
I just had to share the classroom strategies that I found there. Here’s a peek…
Further down, they list the different categories of strategies with guidance.
Here’s an example of one of their strategies — word maps.
This is a gift to all teachers, professionals, parents, and families who actively play a role in a child’s language and literacy development. Many thanks to Reading Rockets for providing educators with this wonderful resource.
