Why Reading Skill of the Day? I designed this resource after searching and searching for the perfect review of reading skills and not being able to find exactly what my students needed. I wanted something that would routinely reintroduce my students to the important skills they had learned throughout the year (and in years prior) and engage them in meaningful, relevant practice. The pages print beautifully in color, but look great in black and white, too!
You can use this resource as morning work, as a warm-up, as whole group or small group practice, nightly homework, and more. The options are endless!
A Note on Grade Levels: This resource is best suited for grades 4+. 3rd grade teachers would find this resource useful when used as guided practice.
