Reading Activities for Child Involvement.
Spache, Evelyn B.
This book is a collection of 571 activities to reinforce reading skills. The rationale for each skill is presented as an introduction to each skill area. The rationales explain (1) why the skill needs to be reinforced, (2) how to understand the skill, and (3) what the child should be able to do after completing the activities. Chapter 1 discusses teacher-made reading kits--what kind of kit to use, directions for assembly, color coding, and suggested materials to include in a kit. In chapter 2, reading readiness skills, including visual skills, discrimination skills, and auditory skills, are discussed. Basic reading skills are covered in chapter 3, including letter and word recognition, concepts of reading, composing stories, and experience charts. Chapter 4 is devoted to word perception; phonics, structural analysis, syllabication, and contextual analysis are examined. The main topic in chapter 5 is language development and vocabulary. Chapter 6 discusses location skills in two areas: the dictionary and the library. Content reading is discussed in chapter 7, and chapter 8 addresses comprehension and interpretation skills. (WR)
