Independent Reading

Kidz Book Hub has been developed to support independent reading of online texts, both at home and in the classroom. As part of a classroom teacher’s Independent reading program students are taught how to self-select texts that they would like to read.

Independent Reading is the key to academic success

Parents and teachers instinctively know what the research tells us, that is, that there is a strong link between reading and academic success; students who read a lot do better academically than those who do not read.

Students who independently become better readers, score higher on achievement tests in all subject areas, and have greater content knowledge than those who do not.”- Cullinan

Independent Reading involves

  • Self-selecting books
    • identify personal interests/needs
    • identify “just right” books
    • collect texts in an accessbile book box
  • Engaging with these books in ways that support learning
