The Best Ways to Support Your Reluctant Readers

Reluctant readers...we've all had them and we're always looking for ideas to help them.  These are the readers who just haven't learned to love reading...YET!  For whatever reason, reluctant readers don't show any interest in reading, and often hide their feelings for reading and simply avoid reading at all costs.  In my first grade classroom, it's acting out during reading time, always asking to use the bathroom or getting a drink (which I don't let them do) and just doing whatever they can to not read.  Over the years, I've come up with some ways that I get my reluctant readers to at least LIKE reading.  I can't promise a love of reading immediately, but these tips may help your reluctant students begin to enjoy reading at least a little bit. 😉
