Creative projects help make it fun for children to learn. They will work much harder to create a nice project of which they can be proud, than they will if they are just finishing a boring worksheet.
Reading failure is a major problem in our society.
We must not give up. We can help students learn to read. I believe that every single student can be taught to read at or above their age level, notice I did not say grade level. At my reading clinic, we teach children to read at their appropriate age level. In this way, even students who have been retained are able to return to their actual age level in reading. It’s never too late, and yes, we can help students overcome the learning difficulties acquired over the coronavirus pandemic. All we need to do is change the way we teach children to read.
