America Reads Challenge: Read*Write*Now! Activities for Reading and Writing Fun.
Kameenui, Edward J.; Simmons, Deborah C.
Developed by national reading experts for the "America Reads Challenge: Read*Write*Now!" initiative, this booklet provides 45 ideas for families, teachers, librarians, and other learning partners to use with all children--including those with disabilities--to help them read well and independently by the end of third grade. The booklet also includes activities to help improve children's reading and writing skills through sixth grade. Activities in the booklet are presented in three sections: "Early Years" for infants and preschoolers; "Moving into Reading" for children through grade 2; and "Encouraging the Young Reader" for older children through grade 6. A 45-item suggested reading list (arranged by grade level), a list of 5 America Reads Challenge publications, and a list of 5 federal resources of assistance are attached. (RS)
