IPICK Good Fit Books - In my county, we use the Readers and Writers workshop approach to literacy. I love it because the kids are much more willing and excited to read. We use PICK to help them get a general idea of if a book will be a good fit for them.
|Retelling a Story|
Our first quarter together, one thing we focused on is students ability to retell a story using Who, When, Where, What, Why, and How. Students used this poster to remember what each question entails.
3 ways to read a book!
Ways to determine whether a book is easy, too hard, or just right
In my room, we use a Stoplight.
Red means "STOP! This book is too hard for you. You are not quite ready to read this book yet, but if you keep reading just-right books, you'll be able to read this one in no time!"
Yellow means "Slow down! These books are too easy for you. If you ready too many of these, you won't become a better reader because you are not using your strategies. Read some, but not too many!"
Green means "Go Go Go!! These books are just right for you. Keep reading these and thinking about your reading to become a better reader!"
