Point and Read


Found in: Reading

I ask my young readers to point to each word as they read. To help them remember to 'point and read' during guided reading groups, I have them put on a plastic finger with a red fingernail. Stores sell these witches' fingers around Halloween time. The plastic fingers come in a variety of colors and the children love to put them on their pointer fingers and then 'point and read'. Sometimes I put happy face stickers on their pointer fingers and other times we point with chopsticks and coffee stirrers.
