One of the best things about teaching is when you see your students’ reading develop over time. They go from letter-sound recognition to word decoding, and finally comprehending passages of text that opens their minds up to the world in a way that would have been impossible if they hadn’t learned how to read!
For that reason, developing a love for reading is incredibly important from an early age. Events such as Book Week in Australia go a long way to helping our students figure out that books (and reading) can be one of life’s greatest joys.
To encourage a love for reading in your students, there are many things you can do.
We have just published a wonderful Book Review Worksheet to help your students share their thoughts and feelings about the book they are currently reading, just in time for Book Week. Whether your class write a review on the whole-class novel, or on a book of their choice, there’s sure to be some great opinions to be heard!
For the younger learners, My Reading Book Concept Book is perfect for them to start their book review journey.
