Building the FOUNDATION
• Trust students
• Provide choice
• Nurture community
• Create a sense of urgency
• Build Stamina
• Encourage Independence
DISD formated ppt.pptx
Encourage students to start their day with some questions in mind:
• What are my goals in reading and writing?
• What will I do first?
• Whom will I work with?
• What do I want to accomplish?
• What was I working on yesterday that I want to continue today?
Choice is highly motivational
and puts students in charge of their own learning!

Turn & Talk
“We move slowly to eventually move
fast…the payoff is enormous.”

Book Boxes
Have a separate book box for each student:
• Use cardboard magazine holders, cereal boxes, small trash cans,
clear plastic envelopes with Velcro, eco-bags, shower caddies, juice
boxes (Capri Sun –cut the top off), plastic baskets, or 2 gallon ziplock bags.
• Place 3-5 books in a box

• Book boxes are always kept in the same place.

Three Ways to Read a Book
Read the pictures
Read the words (For Kindergarten, find a letter/sight words to start)
Read from memory
*Read the picture – Think aloud about the picture
*Read the words – Show how the finger should move left to right under the words
*Read from memory-recall what happened in the story

Good Fit Book
Five Finger Rule:
Read a page in the middle of the book.
Put one finger down for every word that’s too hard to read.
0 fingers – too easy!
1-3 fingers – just right!
4-5 fingers – quite hard – but give it a try.
5 or more fingers – too hard for now.

1. Create
an Anchor Chart with students
2. Go over the Anchor Chart together
3. Teacher models (for about 1-2 minutes)
4. While pointing to the Anchor Chart, ask “Did I start right away?” Was I
reading quietly?”
5. Ask students to model incorrect and correct practices. As he/she is
reading, ask if he/she is following the Anchor Chart quietly. Practice
several times.

Word Work
As you introduce each material, discuss the following:
• Materials in the Word Work Station
• How should students use the materials
• Where should students sit to do Word Work (table, on the floor, carpet area )
• How to clean up (Ex. make sure the top of the marker makes a “click” noise,
return the material to the same spot, etc.)
Word Work should CONNECT to what is being taught in class that
week or to content that needs to be revisited.
