3 Simple Steps Done Regularly = Success in ReadingJanuary 29th, 2009
I was in a business class yesterday and this quote was discussed regarding business.
The conduct of successful business merely consists in doing things in a very simple way, doing them regularly, and never neglecting to do them.
Quoted by: William Lever of Lever Brothers
Think about this. Isn’t this also true of reading, whether you struggle with reading or not? If I change the word business to reading we have:
The conduct of successful reading merely consists in doing things in a very simple way, doing them regularly, and never neglecting to do them.
There are simple things you can do every day or 3 days a week, never neglecting them, to empower your students to become successful readers.
Remember, there are 3 roadblocks to reading:
1. Phonetic problems
2. Reading fluency/visual tracking problems
3. Lack of language or vocabulary
Successful reading needs activities that are simple, done regularly, and never neglected.
addresses all 3 of these with simple activities that don’t take a lot of time. The Sentence Zone game also builds vocabulary.
