Props to Encourage Students to Find and Read Words (Virtual Tour)
Stage of Literacy Development:
Stage 1: Beginning Literacy
Primary: Classroom Tips, Concepts of Print
Children love using stuffed animals and with the Reading Pals they get to be the expert and guide their little stuffy around the classroom, with a pointer, to teach their little stuffy how to read. And the children love to come around and use the pointers or the reading sticks to read through their poem.
The goal of Pointers and Pals: Props to Encourage Students to Find and Read Words (Virtual Tour) is to provide students with opportunities to explore concepts of print, including text directionality.
- Model and practice the activity to ensure student understanding.
