What is the "key" that I use to get my students
to love reading and writing about literature?

the key to learning how to read
  1. I use engaging and creative book report templates.
  2. Each of my students have a reading sticker chart to record the number of books that they have read.
  3. I display all of my students' finished projects in my classroom.

It really is that simple and most importantly, it works!

My students are excited to read books independently
and complete their fun reading projects!

Step #1:

Number 1 Step for Teaching Reading Provide your students with a variety of unique book report projects.

The students in my class read a new book and complete a reading response project every two to three weeks. My students produce a polished final draft that is unique in style, shape, and content. Since my students find these response templates fun and challenging, they are engaged and interested in using their best effort to complete their projects.

My templates emphasize reading comprehension and the writing process, and they also include an art component.

Step #2:

Number 2 Step for Teaching Reading Give each student a reading sticker chart to record the number of books (or genres) that each student has read.

All of my students are given an individual reading file. Inside their reading files are: their book, reading sticker chart, book mark, and their first draft worksheets for their book projects. Students proofread and edit their first drafts on their own, with a partner, or with me before they begin on their final draft templates.

When students have completed the final drafts of their reading projects, they receive a sticker on their reading sticker charts.

Step #3:

Number 2 Step for Teaching Reading Display all of your students' projects in your classroom or in the hallway.

I believe that every child's work should be displayed, not just the "best" ones. I have found that this motivates all of my students to use their best effort.
