Easter Literacy Idea

I have an engaging digital Easter literacy idea for you! Are you using digital activities that much more, even if you’re back in the classroom, physically? I think the pandemic has taught teachers that digital can make your life easier, when used in the right way.

This Easter literacy idea I have for you not only will help you engage your readers, but it’ll also make planning easy!

Building Confidence in Readers

If you’ve been following along, you know I’ve created this new series of resources, called my I am a Reader Digital Passages. I wrote about the details of them in this blog post here. You may want to check that out first, to learn a little more about them!

But, the basic gist of these resources is to engage your early readers, while building their confidence. I find it SO important to include confidence building when working with readers, struggling or early readers, especially. It can make such a difference in their own ability to believe in themselves.

As seen below in my newest holiday edition, for Easter, I include “I am a Reader” and “Now, I am ready to read!” slides with each passage. These are to be read/stated by students before the do the word work and actual reading of the passage. 

A fun gif is also included, following the passage. Kiddos LOVE this. They feel recognized for the hard work they just did and it gives them a mini chance to celebrate. 

Digital Literacy Engagement

Early readers need their literacy activities to be broken up into smaller parts. This will keep them focused and engaged. As a result, they will make greater progress!

By taking the time to do word work, reading a passage and then follow up comprehension questions, students can mentally take mini breaks between each portion of the lesson.

Each passage is short. The follow up questions are also simple, but a great way for early readers to practice simple comprehension. 

Not only do each of the ten passages included have word work practice before reading the passage, but also there is one more word work activity at the end. This helps the student come full circle and really show what they learned, during the literacy lesson.
