2. Reading Register
Using a passage, article, book of teacher’s or student’s choice. Kids can enter independent “meaning making” activities, that reflect their connection and creativity towards what they read. They can write a Review , say a Retell (these two are the most encouraged), create a Quiz, or make a descriptive Drawing or diagram. Student worksheet instructions for each activity can be provided to teachers.
Students will type a review with details like the genre, main characters or subject, a sequential plot, and their expressive opinion . Hence, creating connection and interest towards what they are reading.
Children can comfortably speak in length about what they read. Again, they will give concrete information like: genres, main characters or subjects, a sequential plot, and their expressive opinion.
Kids can self create a 10 question quiz of what they read. Using a sequential order they can generate 6 basic questions and 4 more challenging ones.
Students will create a descriptive drawing or diagram of the plot of the story, their favorite part, or sequence of the beginning, middle, end; as instructed by the teacher.
Teachers are welcome to email LST staff with a passage, article, or book of your choice, indicating the activities you’re selecting for your class. LST will give you weekly reports of your students' scores. We will provide individualized explanation and teacher training if you’d like to explore more possibilities. We will reach out one by one as needed through google hangout, zoom, phone calls, or other online means.
We are now providing support for teachers by forming reading groups to read and complete reading comprehension activities together.
These groups can be directed to include students who need help improving their reading, who are having trouble transitioning to online learning, or need extra support and motivation to join their class activities.
Also, they can be made up of students who enjoy reading, want to be engaged and form part of a book club to make reading fun!
