Reading Tips and Resources from Mrs. Hayes...

Hello Lake Dolphins! I truly hope everyone is staying safe & doing well during this challenging time.  I really miss reading to you all in the Lake Library!! Here are some tips to help you with your reading goals during your remote learning at home. Please share with your families and stay tuned for upcoming posts...

What better time to read, than now?! Here are some quick tips while we’re all spending time indoors.

*Use books from your home “library” by re-reading old favorites or reading ones you haven’t read yet. Use this time to challenge yourself to try something new, even if it doesn’t look interesting at first. Don’t judge a book by its cover! 

*Read together everyday. Practice reading out loud to each other. Younger readers can read to family members or caregivers. Older readers can help younger siblings and readers with tricky words, sight words, and new vocabulary.  

*Choose a reading buddy to practice reading to, like a favorite stuffed animal or a pet, to help you feel comfortable reading out loud.

*Pick a passage of a book to “act out” by turning a favorite read into a mini theater production. Dress up to play the parts. 

*Or, play “book charades” where you try to guess a popular book or character each person acts out.

*Use online resources for improving reading skills or for online book selections. While, to me, nothing replaces the feel of a real book, this can be a helpful alternative when we don’t have access to our school library or public libraries, like now

Go to “Digital Library Options” in the Vista Virtual School for a list of ebook resources: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1zbXQ6mWqJSCo0ICkojGKul5_dK4pRhhJLex9wdzqOBc/edit

 

Our Lake Library resources can also be accessed through Cloud connect under “Library Tools.”
