Thank you Suleyka for sharing your creative and inspiring ideas.
Your students must be having a lot of fun!
- The first idea is the Expression Theatre. Some of my students have a hard time pausing when there is a period; or showing the expression that the characterhas in the picture. I made a little theatre out of a box I found in the copy room and some tape. The children will decorate it. We used some cutouts of the characters in the story as puppets. We colored them, cut them out, and glued them to some popsicle sticks. The students will read the story from behind the theatre and act it out as they read with the puppets we made. We’re still working on it, but we should be trying it out next week. I discussed my idea with the students and they loved it! They are looking forward to reading in the theatre. I will send you pics of the theatre when it is done!
- My second idea is a Reading Scavenger Hunt. What I do is take questions from the Comprehension Quick Check, or just some questions that I make up. Then I write them on the back page of the front cover of the first page. The students have to find the answer and write down the page number where they found it. This will help them look back in the text for answers, rather than just guessing.
Programs for people of all ages
The need for literacy assistance isn’t confined to a single age group or geographic location.
That’s why the Dollar General Literacy Foundation’s grant programs help improve the lives of people
of all ages in many different communities.
