Chalk Talk: The Importance of Functional Reading
Functional reading is the reading of everyday items that help us navigate our world. Some examples of functional reading include street signs, prices, restaurant logos, and menus. This type of reading is especially important because without the ability to read functionally, one may be hindered in many aspects of his or her life. There are steps you can take to help your student become a better functional reader and the number one tip is to start early! Take your student to the grocery store and restaurants as often as possible and read everything you can to them. This early exposure is invaluable. Another great idea is to take a drive or walk around town and read all the signs you come across. Be sure to explain what the signs and symbols mean as well. A few extra minutes a day spent on functional reading can make a huge difference in a student’s success.
