I Know That Motivating Students To Enjoy Reading Can Be So Hectic

You have a thousand things on your plate that must get done. There are teacher meetings that you have to attend. To top that off there’s curriculum that needs to be reviewed and lesson plans that must be developed. By this time you’re frazzled.
The bottom line here is that there are only so many hours in a day. The last thing in the world you really need is to run around going nuts trying to research and download super-cool real-world reading passages to use in your classroom. 
I’m sure that It’s not going to get any easier any time soon. Every year it seems that more and more gets put on a teachers plate without anything being taken off. It hardly seems right does it? 

I just might have found the secret

I quickly discovered my students became more motivated and were much more productive…
The result was more peace of mind, and now I could rest assured that my students were going to have reading activities that they enjoyed…
So I am on a mission to help my fellow teachers alleviate some of the stress that occurs during the teaching of nonfiction texts…

I Wanted to Create Real-World Exciting Nonfiction Reading Passages

I spent countless hours researching and gathering resources from everywhere

Hi my name is Steve Hiles and I want to take this opportunity to share with you my backstory that led me to create my “Read! Coach! Read!” (RCR) reading system. I had observed my fourth graders struggling with informational texts, which was one of our grade level standards. Their formative reading assessments also indicated to me that more work needed to be done with that particular skill. 

My desire was to create some high interest, low to high reading level nonfiction reading passages for my students.   The thing was I wasn’t quite sure what topics would really excite my students, nor was I sure what genres my kids would gravitate toward. 
Quite frankly, I felt bad because the fact that my kids didn’t perform as well on these tests made me feel that I failed them. I thought I should have been able to move the mark for these children. So that got me thinking long and hard about how to proceed. 
The problem was I didn’t quite know where to begin. I researched everything I could find on the internet that addressed reading informational text. I had to rethink a whole new strategy for improving my students reading and comprehension of nonfiction text.
Then it had occurred to me to develop another reading inventory that would ask some pointed questions, as to various topics, genres, and other information where I could gather and analyse it all. I had also been making anecdotal notes as to what kinds of books my students were reading in the classroom.
So after developing the reading interest inventory, I presented it to my kids. What I explained to them is that I wanted real honest feedback, as to what types of real-world material they enjoyed reading the most. I have to admit some of the feedback came as a surprise to me. My class gave me some valuable input for my consideration. But there still was a problem.
I still had to deal with the fact how I would make these reading passages truly engaging, to the point where kids couldn’t wait to get their hands on them. Also, I had to develop texts that were appropriate for varying reading levels.
This whole process got very frustrating at times trying to create something from scratch that children would find truly enjoyable and fascinating. Well, I worked on the project for over three months and ended up with a resource of materials centered around “Extreme Sports.” I was bound and determined to perfect this packet of materials, and so excited to introduce these to my class, and colleagues down the hall. I wanted to test out my protocol for delivering my new system of reading.
As a result, within the time period it took me to create this resource, I had developed 15 informational texts, a teacher implementation guide,’ an “I can statement,” student roles, questions and answer keys, and a variety of exit tickets — to validate their learning.
After creating Reach! Coach! Read! I was then able to put in place my reading system finally. It took a couple of class sessions for students to get the hang of the procedures. Frankly, I had noticed a shift in their attitude(a cool thing) toward reading after the very first class session! I attribute that to the accountability piece that was built into RCR. I have to tell you that I witnessed children really getting fired up over these real-world informational reading passages. It was so rewarding to see this whole effort pay off like it did.
In the end this meant I had students that could not wait until the next time I rolled out my reading system. Typically, I would implement RCR an average of three times per week, but never less than two. In conclusion, I felt gratified knowing that what I developed instilled a love of reading, and their reading skills of nonfiction text dramatically improved like I’ve never seen before.

The Tale of Despereaux Reader's Theatre Bundle

Despereaux loves to listen to King Phillip playing his guitar and singing to his daughter, Princess Pea, every night. Despereaux breaks a basic “mouse rule” and reveals himself to the humans. When the princess sees the mouse, he comes even closer, and Pea picks him up. Despereaux realizes she looks exactly like the picture of the princess in the fairy tale he adores, and he falls instantly in love. Pea wants to keep the mouse, but her father refuses. Then Despereaux breaks an even greater “mouse rule”—speaking to the humans. He tells the princess not to cry and gives her his name before he runs off.

Furlough scurries off to tell his father, Lester, who immediately calls a Mouse Council meeting. At the meeting, the Most Very Honored Mouse declares that something must be wrong with Despereaux, and that his behavior is a threat to all of the mice. The entire Mice Council, including Lester, votes to send Despereaux to the dungeon to be eaten by rats. First, however, Despereaux is called before the Council and given an opportunity to repent. Despereaux refuses to say that he is sorry for what he has done and continues to profess his love for the princess. The threadmaster mouse arrives with a spool of red thread and ties a piece around Despereaux’s neck; this mark of death seals Despereaux’s fate.

Roscuro wanders through the castle, he discovers a party in process and is enchanted by how happy and bright the revelers look, including King Phillip, Queen Rosemary, and Princess Pea. Roscuro decides to watch the party from a chandelier, but he slips and falls into the queen’s bowl of soup.

Soup is Queen Rosemary’s favorite food, and she eats it at every meal. When she sees the rat in her soup, the queen dies instantly of shock. Roscuro runs off but looks back at the Pea. Her expression full of repulsion and rage, the princess tells the rat to go back to the dark, “where you belong.” Her harsh treatment breaks Roscuro’s heart. Determined to have something beautiful, Roscuro picks up the queen’s discarded soup spoon, and with it he returns to the dungeon.

Despereaux re-enters the dungeon in order to save the Princess Pea. He takes a spool of red thread so that he can find his way back. The cook was making soup, even though it was outlawed throughout the land, and gives some to Despereaux. Despereaux ultimately finds his way to the hiding place where Roscuro had hid Miggery Sow and Princess Pea. Roscuro smells soup and falls to the ground begging Despereaux to kill him, because all he wanted was some soup and light. Princess Pea tells Roscuro if he led them out of the dungeon he could have some soup.
