Teaching Reading and Literature in Early Elementary Grades. Standards Consensus Series.
Wilson, Jennifer, Ed.
This book, part of a series which serve as guides for K-12 teachers who are striving to align lively, classroom-tested practices with standards, gathers together brief articles spotlighting suggestions for effective instruction. The book contains dozens of diverse and thought-provoking activities for helping very young readers to grow into the world of literature. The book begins with a focus on growing reading skills such as predicting and sequencing, then progresses toward more complex experiences that involve response to literature, discussion, and collaborative work. A final section of the book gathers together ideas for interdisciplinary and multisensory approaches to reading, ranging from concrete, tactile exercises to strategies embracing fine arts, social studies, science, and mathematics.
