Welcome to the Reading Center!
These are the reading strategies that we use with our readers!
Our theme this year in the reading center:
Grab your passports! In the reading room this year we will explore the question "Where will reading take you?". Our students will be transported to wondrous places through their books! We want our students to work on stamping their passports by reading at home every night and continue to grow by using their indpendent reading strategies!
We will also be focusing on helping students to change their mindsets about school work that they think is too hard for them. We want our readers to have a growth mindset and know the power of practice. They may not be able to do something yet but with practice, practice, practice they will reach their goal.
Here are some thinking shifts that we can foster in our children to help motivate and encourage:
When I struggle, I GROW!
I am a HARD worker!
I can do HARD things!
I LEARN from my mistakes!
I am SMART!
My brain can STRETCH!
I can always IMPROVE if I keep trying!
I DON'T give up!
