I teach fifth grade, and although you might think glasses without a lens are a bit silly, these work beautifully as visual reminders of how I want my students to read.
I model these pink beauties while reading silly poems, or maybe just a fun novel. When introducing the glasses the first time, I explain that these colorful glasses are for fun reading when you can kick back, put your feet up, and relax! Stress-free reading time! It is my goal that my students truly see reading as a pleasure and this is just one more opportunity to point out that pleasure reading is a big deal in my world.
Now these glasses have a very serious job. These glasses are for when you need to read CLOSELY with a pencil in hand. These glasses work well when re-reading several times is necessary to fully absorb the text. This particular cutie-pie is reading a Social Studies comic book. :) I have several pairs of these CRITICAL READING GLASSES at my small group table, and my big kids earn them by showing lots of evidence of CLOSE reading. :) Even big kids, including boys, love this stuff!
Now, before you go...
