Everything Reading O.G. Interactive Notebook- A Year Long Resource
Understanding, teaching, and assessing the 5 Components of Reading is imperative. And, not just in the primary years! This notebook has CHANGED. MY. LIFE. Before, I would teach a concept, my students would fill out a worksheet, we would recycle or send home said worksheet, and then we’d move on. Two months later, when I noticed a student was struggling with a concept, we would have nothing to reference and go back to.
Once we started building the Everything Reading Notebook, we could review concepts that weren’t solid. We had something to reference, practice, and add on to. It changed my communication with parents. They could see the patterns, read the descriptions, and follow along with their student’s learning. It was a game changer.
The 5 components of reading listed below are each a tab of the notebook. Use a cheap composition notebook and the templates provided. For students who need more visual support, you can also use the binder version that is included.
We've also included the Avery Tabs template!
This notebook is to capture initial learning and a reference manual. Additional practice, games, and repetition are often where the “ahh-ha!” moment takes place. Check out our Complete Intermediate Phonics, Spelling, & Morphology Program to see how be even more systematic! It correlates with the patterns seen here.
Phonological Awareness- the ability to hear, recognize, and manipulate the sounds of a language
Phonics- matching the individual sounds of a language (phonemes) to written symbols (letters)
Fluency- the ability to read accurately and with expression while gaining meaning from the text
Vocabulary- the words of a language that convey meaning. Vocabulary is essential for comprehension
Comprehension- the ability to gain meaning and understanding from what is being read
Bonus: Morphology is also included! Understanding that words are made up of prefixes, bases/roots, and suffixes and that those parts carry meaning, can change everything! Adding this component is when we saw the most growth for our intermediate students!
