One way to get better as a reader is to know your bad habits and to drop them. Students this week have been referring to their newest anchor chart titled “Drop That Bad Habit!”
Be on the look out for it in their reading folder!
o The Freeze
o The Tell Me
o The Mumble
o The Blooper
Once they identified some of their "Bad Habits" they looked at their “Pick Up a Good Habit! chart.
o Check the Picture
o Look At All The Parts of the Word
o Check It!
With their reading partners they have been learning how to be "teachers" by helping each other drop bad habits by remembering their good habits! They have been using a visual aide to help them STOP! At the first sign of trouble- and fixing it up!
Check back in next week to see them use good habits to solve tricky words!
