  2. 2. My Philosophy of Reading<br />Reading is a necessary skill to be successful citizens in today’s society! The ability to read is a key factor to living healthy, happy, and productive lives (Reutzel & Cooter 2008) <br />Reading opens new worlds within the lives of children in many different ways.<br />In order for students to be successful in the area of reading, it is vital that they view reading as being fun and entertaining!<br />As an educator, it is important for me to work with a variety of different genres when teaching my students. Providing a wide selection of genres and reading material at various reading levels helps ensure students’ success. (B. Graves, M. Graves, & Juel 2007)<br />
  3. 3. Hmmm….<br />Balanced Literacy is a program that that was developed on the idea that all children can read and write. It follows the gradual release of responsibility model from the teacher to the students. Also, all elements of literacy and other content areas are integrated within this program.<br />What is balanced literacy any way?<br />
  4. 4. Literacy By Design:Program Overview<br />“Educators asked for materials that engage children deeply, include content that motivates them, and lifts students to the highest possible levels of performance…And we listened.”<br />-Quoted from the 6 authors of Literacy By Design<br />This program includes the 5 elements of reading<br /> *Phonemic Awareness <br />*Phonics<br />*Vocabulary<br />*Fluency<br />*Comprehension<br />This balanced literacy program provides the educator with the necessary resources to teach the important literacy skills and strategies to teach all five elements of reading.<br />This program puts an emphasis of nonfiction texts!<br />

  9. 9. Literacy Work Stations<br />The picture to the right shows the rotation board that is used in my classroom during work stations.<br />Students are either grouped by reading levels or by specific skills that need to be practiced. They could also be grouped by interests or just heterogeneously.<br />Work stations are differentiated to meet the needs of all students.<br />
