I Spy Readers....

I just came across this idea from Jonelle. It is posted on her blog A Place Called Kindergarten. What a great way to motivate your new kindergartners to want to learn to read.

Jonelle's class made "I Spy Readers" magnifying glasses and went on a hunt around their school to look for readers.

They found...
4th graders reading really BIG books, teachers reading notes in a notebook, 2nd graders reading lists of words, 1st graders reading words on the Smartboard, teachers reading aloud to their class....

What a great way to have fun and get students excited about books and reading!!

Check out Jonelle's post at I Spy Readers.... You can download the magnifying glass for free from the post.

This idea goes great with Abby Mullins unit Ready to Read: Reading Activities For the Beginning of the Year. You can preview the unit at her TPT Store. I purchased this unit recently and can't wait to use the lessons in it. It is full of fun ways to motivate young readers.
