McGee, Alice E.; Weinstein, Rachel S.
This practical guide to teaching reading offers activities to teach reading readiness and mathematics. It also discusses the reasons for reading to children, teaching phonics, and using the basal reader. The section on reading readiness focuses on the importance of such skills, and specific reading readiness skills such as visual discrimination, auditory perception, sense of touch, and movement. The section on mathematics instruction presents activities to help students in classifying, sequencing, and number skills. After a brief section on the importance of reading aloud to children, the next section presents several methods for teaching phonics. The last section presents 31 activities that can be used with basal readers. A basic sight vocabulary of 220 words and additional games and activities are attached. (RS)
