Reading Strategies Bulletin Board

Running from one reading group to another in a special-needs classroom, I found myself repeating the same information and not fostering much independent thought.

To that end, the students and I came up with a quick reference tool—a Reading Strategies Bulletin Board.

Consequently, I did less talking (which made everybody happy!) and helped students tap into their inner resources when they were struggling to identify unfamiliar words.

To support memory issues, the colour-coding was an added bonus.

Later, we made individual placements with the information from the bulletin board.

Next we developed a guide to use to access Google doc's and posted it on the bulletin board.

Having too much text on the walls is often counterproductive for students (especially for those with a learning disability), but this simple guide helped students who were hampered by memory problems.
