Teach Your Students and Children to Read (FREE K-8 Summer Reading Challenge) #messireadingchallenge

Are you trying to teach your students or children to read? If so, I have created a FREE reading challenge to help you! The goal is to help readers become active participants in the reading process. Over the next ten weeks, I will post a video each week teaching a reading comprehension skill. I explain and model the skill and even give you a challenge activity and a FREE workbook to practice with.

I will cover how to complete KWL charts, make predictions, visualize with the five senses, summarize with the five W’s, monitor and clarify, the story elements, ask good questions, make inferences, use textual evidence, and close read. You will learn 10 different reading comprehension skills!

This is a great way for your students or children to make huge strides in their reading during the summer months. I invite you to join the challenge!

For the past seven years, I have taught at a Charter school in San Diego that serves a 60% refugee and immigrant population. I have had the opportunity to teach everything from Honors Social Science subjects, Android app development, remedial literacy and AVID to running an after school robotics and basketball program, operate as testing coordinator, and serve on our school’s leadership team. I recently finished my M.S.E in Curriculum & Instruction with an emphasis in Reading Education at Kansas University.
