Movin’ On Up – How to Support Students to Read Level 3 and Beyond
Online Professional Learning Session – Presented Live on October 4, 2021 at 6:30pm. This session will be recorded and available for repeat viewing until August 31, 2022.
Presented by: Melissa Wilde, Reading Recovery Trainer and Teacher Leader with York Region District School Board.
Do you have students in your primary classrooms who seem ‘stuck’ reading patterned text (Levels 1-2)? Are you wondering how to help your students move into Level 3 texts and beyond? In this session, we will explore practical approaches to help establish foundational early reading behaviours when working with students in small groups or individually. We will consider what might make this learning challenging for some children and reflect upon ways to personalize interactions based on knowledge of each child’s identities, strengths, interests and lived experiences.
