Guided reading is a school time activity that’s done in nearly every classroom. It’s important to emphasize to students that it is just as important to follow along with the group reading as it is to be the person reading out loud. Kids can get easily distracted during silent reading and group reading time. These pom pom pointer reading helpers can be crucial in keeping younger students on track during group time reading. They are also a great learning tool to help new readers focus as they are just learning to read.
Pom Pom Reading Helpers Supplies:
Step 1. To begin this super easy project, you’ll pick the colors of pom poms that you’d like to use to make the reading helpers. You can use all of the same color to prevent arguments or create lots of different ones for a rainbow of pointers.
Step 2. Next you’ll apply a large drop of hot glue to the top of the dowel.
When kids read silently or out loud, have them get into the practice of using their reading helpers to follow along. They can use their pointers in class and for at home reading.
Get your kids excited about reading with these activities and crafts that highlight reading for kids. These hand print flower DIY bookmarks for kids are also a fun way to keep kids interested in their reading. Kids can hold their spot in their favorite books with an adorable crochet heart bookmark.
