Be the teacher who inspires the students to read with confidence and spirit!
Do you often find yourself thinking about how best to inspire students to read books?
Are you worried about the next PA meeting where you’ll have to explain to parents why their kid can't keep up with their classmates' reading abilities?
Alternatively, are you noticing that you're losing the attention of the advanced readers while introducing a lighter material?
It almost looks like there's no way out of this situation, and that maybe you’ll have to sacrifice some kids’ learning in order to help the others.
"What am I doing wrong?" you may ask yourself. "Am I not doing enough?"
And you spend yet another night looking for a way to encourage and inspire the kids to read independently, identify words, and level with their peers.
The truth is, some teachers don't even ask these questions and then judge their students as talented or not talented when the difference lies in their individual skills and development.
