Repeated Readings

Found in: reading

I have a communication system that works well for children who are experiencing reading difficulties. I present a short book to a student, have the student read it to me, and then send it home in a manila envelope. (I use recycled envelopes the office saves for me.) The student must read the book to an adult at home, have the adult sign the envelope and bring the envelope back to school. The same envelope can be used again and again and it's a good record of books the student has read. Next, the student reads the book to me again and he/she gets a sticker. With five stickers, a student earns time on the computer for learning games. By the time students read their books to me, they can read them fluently and their self-esteem soars.
