Knowledge of reading skills goes a long way to facilitate learning for life.The study sets out to investigate the reading skills teachers teach children to apply when reading a text, and the strategies teachers use to teach reading skills to children. Two research questions and one hypothesis guided the study. All the teachers about 3574 in public primary schools, in Anambra State constituted the population. Proportionate random sampling technique was used to select 1050 teachers. A validated and reliability tested 35-item researchers-developed questionnaire was used to analyze the research questions while t-test statistic was used to test the hypothesis. Findings revealed that greater percentage of teachers do not teach learners to apply reading skills to texts and the number of strategies they use in teaching reading skills is not encouraging. The implication of the finding was highlighted. Researchers recommended that curriculum planners should make teaching reading skills a subject in schools in Anambra State.
