Reading Tips and Tricks in the Classroom

Wednesday, March 5, 2014
Well, I am now sounding like Fran Drescher right now. It stinks to be sick right now. Today I am linking up with Primary Chalkboard for their Read Across America linky party.

 Well, I have been given advice about reading tips. In the summer of 2012, I been to an ARI training session for three days. I learned a lot of reading tips and also learned them from field experiences and experience as a teacher's aide. Here is what I learned about reading....

1. Build Your Classroom Library
Children loves a classroom library. There are many benefits of having a classroom library. Take full advantage of your school's book clubs, book fairs, etc. because they provide a variety of books that will enrich your children's minds. During my first field experience, I was told by a teacher that I need to start building my classroom library. I took advantage of book clubs and book fairs. Also, make sure that any books that you had when you were a little child be donated to the library you are building(if you like). I was in field experience last year and I had noticed a lot of donated books from students.

2. Table Books, Table Books, What Do We See?
I am going to stressed about this over and over again. Table books are a great way for your students to read after they get through with their work. Those can be a way to keep that student preoccupied for awhile until everyone is done with their assigned work. Best advice is to swap out the books at the tables every two days or every week so the children would not get bored with the same story over and over again.

3. Reading Time With Students
When I was a teacher's aide, I would go outside the classrooms and would sit with the students at a desk right outside the door one-on-one to help them with their reading. The teacher would tell me what to do with each group of students that she assigned to for their reading intervention. I would work with the students who need help the most and I would use the material that the teacher would lay out on my table. Scott Foresman would have the little readers and the students would read me the little readers. If they get stuck on the word, I will help them with the word. Having teacher-to-student time with reading can help them get comfortable reading aloud. Which brings me to...

4. Students Need A Partner with Reading
Students love to read with another student. The students in your class are friends with each other. Let them partner up and use many strategies such as turn-and-talk. These strategies can end up with one student who can read by themselves to help a students who are struggling to read the entire book. Both students are equal and also they can learn more about comprehension by talking to each other. Besides the partners reading to each other, use other reading strategies such as comprehension, letter recognition, etc. for them to work together as a team. 

5. All Students Need Help
I learned that at every field experience that I have been to is that all students maybe struggling with something. Maybe a student has a problem with their test that they struggled with or maybe a student has a problem saying a word in a book. Remember that all teachers are not there to criticize the students, we are there to help them exceed and reach their potential. We would find a way for them to remember such as a mnemonic for them to remember or a strategy that they could do at home with their parents. Remember to praise them, not taunt them.
