Pop Up into Reading

Found in: motivating students; reading; reluctant readers

A strategy I have found that really draws reluctant readers into reading, particularly reluctant ELL boys, is to stock up on as many pop-up books as possible. Of course, the fairy princess pop-up books aren't much of a lure, but the pop-up books on science subjects like deep-sea monsters and spiders fly off my shelves every morning. The kids start out just looking at the pictures, but they get so involved with the picture that they want to know more. If you search the kid's sections and the clearance racks of local bookstores, these books can sometimes be found for as little as $3.00.
