This is a first/second grade unit titled How Can I Be a Good Reader? Lessons in Understanding Books. We want our students and children to be great readers, but we only teach them how to read words, not to think about what they're reading. This unit explicitly teaches children how to think while reading, just like good readers need to do. Good readers do specific things to monitor their comprehension before they read, while they read and after they read. Reading is fun! There are specific steps good readers take to unlock meaning and comprehend a text. Your student or child will learn this and more in this unit! How can I be a good reader? AND What can I do when I'm not understanding what I'm reading?
