Do your kids have a beloved book? One they have read over and over, and over? We do and my daughter and I are using it for our current reading lesson. We have read it so many times almost every page is taped somewhere – its kinda sad looking – but almost all of the words have been committed to memory (both by me and my daughter). I wanted to see how many of the words she was reading were rote. How many of them did she know were the sentences you read with “those pictures” and figure out how many of the words has she really learned to recognize, and read. I typed up the words, printed them out on cardstock and cut them into individual word cards. It was fun watching E find a word she recognized and put them in order to create her “sentences”. She loved this reading lesson and asked if we could do it again after nap time.
What motivates your kids to read? I’d love to hear your tips and ideas!
