Focus ONE Point & Breathe

This year in our ELAR - (English Language Arts and Reading) work we must focus on what is most important. For me, I can bring that down to one main thing: Teaching kids to love reading and writing and to comprehend both of those disciplines really, really well!

In order for our students to deeply understand what they are reading they have to get beyond shallow, compliant reading, and shift into deeper reading. Students need NO acronym based reading strategies to be able to do this. They absolutely need to learn the natural comprehension strategies that ALL strategic readers use and apply them when needed.

Teach students to focus in on one good reading strategy that is good for them for life, then step back and breathe...it will take them far on this reading journey!

Ready.....Aim......Read!!!!

You'll be happy that you did,
