Ready, Set, Read! Hundreds of Exciting, Skill-Appropriate Ready-To-Use Reading Readiness Activities. Pre-K-1.
Feldman, Jean R.
Designed to be useful for teachers, students, and parents, this resource book contains skill-appropriate, easy-to-follow activities for emergent readers. Noting that helping children become successful readers by developing reading readiness skills and a love for literature requires careful planning and instruction, the book states that children need to be read to and talked with, and they need to learn in print-rich environments that inspire the desire to learn. The games, songs, and hands-on activities in the book give children opportunities to develop these readiness skills as they construct knowledge and make meaningful connections. Following an introduction, the book is divided into the following broad sections: Teachers Plus!; Literature Experiences for the Daily Schedule; Assessment; Visual Skills Activities; Auditory Skills Activities; Small Motor/Eye-Hand Coordination Skills Activities; Oral Language Skills Activities; Books & Beyond Activities; and Parents Plus! Ideas, Sample Letters, and Activities. An appendix contains reproducible materials. (NKA)
