Reading Strategy Posters & Printables

Learning about the strategies that good readers use can be enough to help your little learners who are struggling with the emergent stages of reading begin to focus and attempt their practice more readily. 

They help make something a little daunting seem possible. They can help your kiddos understand what comes naturally to many readers. They break the reading process down into actionable behaviours. Embedded in a class program full of meaningful and authentic rich literacy experiences an awareness of explicit strategies can boost the reading skills of everyone!

Print the pages of this packet to make some super cute and bright learning resources to support your reading strategy lessons.  Choose one to focus on each week or fortnight and integrate it into your regular literacy lessons. An explicit demonstration or modelling of the strategies need only to take a few minutes and the continued reflection back to a classroom visual will support the strategy throughout the year.
