How Do I Support My High Readers?

Eva Mireles3rd grade teacher, 4th grade teacher, 5th grade teacher, The Reading Teacher's Playbook Podcast, Upper Elementary, Upper Elementary Teacher


In this episode:

 I lay the foundation of what needs to be in place before we reach for the extras that we think of when we think of supporting high readers. 

I talk about:

  1. What support for on and above level readers should look like.
  2. Why our on and above level readers need our support even though they may look fine. 
  3. How to make supporting your on and above level readers work with your current literacy block. 


 – Supporting on or above level readers means remembering that they deserve our watchful eye and protective concern about their reading progress as much as our striving readers do.

– We support our higher readers because we don’t make assumptions about their abilities.

-We support on or above level readers by  making time to meet with them, ensure they have the basics down and teaching them.
