Why Boys?

Boys face unique challenges in the classroom: they tend to be competetive, adventurous and want to move a lot. Let’s use this to their advantage by:

  • Adding physical movement to learning activities: hopscotch, letter dice, letter balls
  • Reading books that have adventure in them
  • STOP using books for reading practice where Kindergarten and Grade 1 students have the ability to  sound out less than half of the words (so discouraging).
  • Use books for reading practice where all of the words can be successfully read by Kindergarten and Grade 1 students – from beginning to end (very encouraging). This is CRUCIAL.
