Our school is not making AYP in reading. What are some things that your schools are doing that have worked to raise reading scores?

Reading logs- 20 minutes a day, 100 minutes per week required.

AR tests

Reading responses

Reading conferences

Guided reading

Shared reading

Independent reading

Read aloud daily - I try to find books the kids really like where they beg me to not stop reading to them. I also include read alouds during math, science and social studies on occasion for variety.

I give mine craft directions once every two weeks or so. They have to read and follow the directions without my help. They are mostly paper crafts so they are cheap. I have tried them ahead of time to make sure the directions are clearly written. I allow them to look at my sample. I allow them to help one another. I allow them to start over if they mess up. They are so proud of themselves when they finish and have a product that proves they can read and follow directions. I don't tell them this is a reading exercise. It is a reward for working hard. They think it is fun!

Crafts-Reading To Follow Directions

I actually spent a summer checking out craft books from the public library. I made copies of the crafts I wanted. Then I put them in a large binder.

I also find some online. I'll attach one that is origami. They love origami!

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/orig...=9780439539913

This is great book that focuses on the math of origami. The instructions are well written. It gives pattered squares that you can copy for origami paper instead of buying the expensive stuff in the craft stores. There is also another book in this series for older children.

We make snowflakes, cootie catchers, Chinese lanterns and more.
If you try to find some online search for aper holiday crafts for children". I found many that were for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter......Some magic tricks are also fun to read and try.

Sentence Combining activities which rhelps students to increase their language understanding and usage. This then helps reading comprehension.

Phonemic Awareness until automatic and a good program to teach decoding so that the processing power can be used on comprehension instead of decoding (which is why it is important that decoding is automatic).
