Motivation to Read 2- Reading web activity. Teachers could make a web in a corner of their classroom. Next to the web there is a running tally of the number of books students have read at home. The teacher could set a goal and when that goal is reached the class could do something fun or receive a reward.
Part of becoming a strong reader is learning to pick books that fit you as a reader. A book should interest the child, but should also challenge him/her as a reader, but not so much that he/she can't comprehend the book. I definitely want to have a poster like this in my class someday because I want to do all I can to help my students become better readers.
