Missing Pieces - Shared Reading!

Help me give my students the materials they need to effectively participate in a multi-text curriculum. We need pointers and highlighter tape and arrows for shared reading, and timers so that students are encouraged to improve fluency!

My Students

I teach in a high performing district where students love to learn, teachers inspire, families engage and the community trusts the system. I support teachers and students in a Title I school. Our students are a bright and energetic bunch of scholars. They come to school every day excited to learn more about the world around them.

My school is packed full of very diverse and inquisitive students.

Our school works hard to counter the effects and challenges of an economically disadvantaged community and give students an opportunity to live a choice-filled lives. We love learning new things and being part of our unique little family.

My Project

My project aims to give students and teachers the additional materials they need to implement an effective, interactive and engaging Shared Reading experience. These materials move the facilitative role from the teacher to the student thus encouraging independence, student engagement and interactive lesson planning.

Students can track print and lead Shared Reading with pointers.

Highlight examples of the lesson anchor identified in the text using highlighter tape and model fluency and manage their reading time using the timer!

I am excited to see how there new materials will help students take ownership of their learning and increase excitement, engagement, and motivation while developing student confidence and leadership skills and teamwork!
