Lecturas gráficas DE IMPACTO is a series of graphic readers that can be introduced into the classroom in a variety of ways, connecting to different aspects of the curriculum and emphasizing many skills.

Reading Aloud to Students

Reading aloud to young learners strengthens their reading skills and contributes to their enjoyment of literature. As young learners listen and respond to graphic readers, they predict, make inferences, hypothesize, identify with the characters, respond critically and creatively, and develop a sense of story. Books read aloud can expose students to a higher reading level and a greater range of literacy.

Shared Reading

Through shared reading, students learn sight words and sound-letter relationships when they are pointed out or discussed in a group setting. The nature of a graphic reader allows students to make strong text-to-image connections. By sharing graphic readers repeatedly through speaking or chanting in unison, students learn to make sense of the words, letters, and pictures.

Small Group Instruction

The carefully leveled text and features of graphic readers offer opportunities for instructing small groups of learners with similar levels of reading competence. Young readers are able to see themselves as successful readers when they receive instructed reading guidance that supports their abilities to process text and includes only a few challenges involving words, context, and content.

Independent Reading

By allowing students to choose what they want to read, independent reading enhances reading abilities and encourages a positive attitude toward books. Graphic readers are often popular choices due to their visual appeal and ease of access. Independent reading increases the time students spend reading, and offers opportunities for learning and practicing reading strategies while monitoring their own reading.

Guided Reading

Graphic readers are ideal tools to support an effective guided reading program, covering a range of curriculum areas, including science, math, social studies, and the arts. Establishing well-organized routines helps students to know what to do while the teacher is working with another small group of students.
