Taking her advice, I decided to create my own reading pointers for my students. I found great templates for reading pointers on TeachersPayTeachers. One teacher made her "Read Along Pointers" free and included new templates for each month of the year. Here is the link.
I recommend that if you make these, laminate the pointers and use hot glue. Originally, I did not laminate the pointers and they were destroyed within a week.
I found that by using these, my students are more likely to follow along while reading and are more excited about reading portion of the intervention.
