Rights of a Reader

Tuesday, October 17, 2017
After reading Donalyn Miller's The Book Whisperer (which I HIGHLY recommend), I wanted to start the year off fostering a love of reading. I really wanted my students to take ownership of their reading, choose their own books and fall in love with our independent reading time. I used some of what Donalyn shared in her book and chose 10 Rights of a Reader. 
At the beginning of the year, I share these rights with the students and we briefly discuss them. Then throughout the year, I revisit and discuss the different elements so students are very aware of what they are able to do during our independent reading time. You can find the posters HERE in my Teachers Pay Teachers store! The blank letters are also available, as well as white background versions for easier printing.

I love having these displayed in my classroom above my classroom library for students to reference so they know they are readers and have rights in their reading habits!
