Reading Strategies --Redone

Hi Blogging Buddies,

These are the reading strategies I place in my B.E.A.R ( Bring Everything Always Ready) parent/teacher communication binder. I put them in a page protector so the children can refer to them at home.  I did not like how the old one looked and it was hard for the children to read. 
 I had read  somewhere that these are called Beanie Baby strategies, but I could never find all the beanie babies.... remember those?  So, when Scrappin Doodles came out with the clip art I was so excited and so were my shopping feet! 
This is not my idea and I cannot remember where I read about these strategies.  I would love to give credit to the person because this strategy has really helped my children when they come to unknown words and it helps parents with reading at home.  
 I am redoing the posters I have up in my classroom and hope to have them redone by tomorrow.   Please click on the picture to download if you would like a copy and leave a comment.  I love hearing from you!

What an awesome resource - thank you! I'm not sure I have all of the Beanie Babies, either - now I don't need them!

I love this! My k students seem to really grab on to these. Thank you for sharing. I found and saved a bookmark for kids with the same pictures on them from some blog site. Now I can't get the file to open to print and can't re-locate the source. Anyone familiar with Reading Strategy Bookmarks with same clipart?

I just found your blog and I am so excited. Thank you for all of the wonderful things you have posted here. I am going back to work next week after being off for 6 weeks on maternity leave and I can't wait to meet my kiddos and get them started on so many of your wonderful ideas. Your nocturnal animal/bat stuff is great!! Thank you again so much!

I've been searching for a sheet to send home to parents with the strategies on them... I'm so happy I found your blog!!!! We use one more strategy in first grade - Flippy Dolphin (flip the vowel sound). Would you ever consider adding that to your sheet?


Reading Makes Your Child Smarter

Reading is known to have numerous benefits. It increases your world knowledge, enhances your vocabulary, and works to improve your reading comprehension abilities.

But did you know that reading can actually make you smarter?

In fact, reading not only can make a child smarter, the very act of reading can even help to compensate for modest levels of cognitive ability in children by building their vocabulary and general knowledge! This is a finding reported by researchers Cunningham and Stanovich in a report titled "What Reading Does For the Mind".

The simple fact here is that reading can make your child smarter, and that learning to read early on is directly linked to later success in life.

1) Did you know that your child's vocabulary at 3 years old predicts his or her grade one reading success? [1]

2) Did you know that vocabulary and reading ability in first grade strongly predicts grade 11 outcomes? [2]

3) Did you know that your child's reading skill in grade 3 directly influences high school graduation? Studies have found that children who cannot read proficiently by grade 3 are four times more likely to leave school without a diploma than proficient readers! [3]

But how do you teach a young child to read, and isn't that the job of the school and teachers?

You can't be more wrong...

With the right tools, knowledge, and techniques, teaching young children to read can be a simple and effective process. I'd like to introduce you to a fantastic reading program called Children Learning Reading, a super effective method for teaching children to read - even children as young as just 2 or 3 years old.

The creators of this program have used it to teach their four children to read before age 3, and by reading, I mean real, phonetic reading.

I can understand if you find that hard to believe... In fact, I had a difficult time believing it myself as well... that is, until I saw the videos they posted documenting the reading progress of the their children - not to mention all the videos other parents have sent in showcasing their children's reading progress after using the Children Learning Program. After learning more about their methods and techniques, it became clear how it's possible to teach young children to read effectively.

It is truly within your ability to teach your child to read in a relatively short period of time spending just 10 to 15 minutes each day.
