Reading Habits Interview

August 2, 2013 No Comments

Fall Reading Interview One of the ways I get to know my students better is through questionnaires and interviews. I learn so much from their answers in a short amount of time, and it helps me to plan better ways to meet their needs. If I have a reluctant reader who loves beavers, then I will be sure to grab some beaver books from the library to share with him.  If another child loves poetry, I will introduce her to other poets as well as books with a predictable rhythm and rhyme to expand her reading diet.

On the left is a set of questions about a student’s reading preferences. I hand this out on the first day. Younger students work on it with their parents. When they are returned, I spend an evening reading and jotting anecdotal notes about my new students.
