Reading and Writing the Room

For read the room students use special pointers to 'read' print around the classroom.  Students usually choose to read and write print that is very familiar to them - the numbers and days of the week on our calendar, our  kindness pledge, ABC charts, the class number worm, poem charts, color words, names on our name wall, foods on our environmental print wall,  etc. Children also like to go on a read the room letter hunt, searching for all the Tt's, etc. they can find! Whether students are 'reading the room' or 'writing the room', they are

  • making attempts to 'track' the print and make one to one correspondence
  • making distinctions between letters and words
  • recognizing that print has meaning
