6 Literacy Experiences for Every Child, Every Day

Teachers and coaches, here is something that every teacher in every classroom can actualize every day in the work of K-12.
1.  Every child reads something (s)he chooses (every day)
2.  Every child reads accurately (every day)
3.  Every child reads something (s)he understands (every day)
4.  Every child talks with peers about reading and writing (every day)
5.  Every child listens to a fluent adult read aloud (every day)
6.  Every child writes about something personally meaningful
