Creating Little Book Worms in K-3

There is nothing better than burying your head in a nice book, in my opinion!

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.

How to Encourage a Love for Reading With Your Students

To encourage a love for reading in your students, there are many things you can do.

  • Provide a wide range of books in your classroom, covering all topics and abilities.
  • Read to your class for pleasure, not just learning (they’re learning without even realising it!).
  • Be patient with your students and celebrate the small wins. When reading is a chore it is not going to develop into something that is done for pleasure.
  • Encourage your class families to read to their children every night.

Resources to Promote a Reading

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!

Resources to Promote a Love For Reading

For the younger learners, My Reading Book Concept Book is perfect for them to start their book review journey.

  • I appreciate you sharing your knowledge and expertise. Your website is excellent. The amount of knowledge on your website is astounding. I do have a question though: what do you often do for fun? I recently discovered the snake io game, which may keep you busy all winter. Come come over immediately.
