Give students the reading skills they need to succeed!
Can all your students read fluently, independently, and with understanding? As puzzle pieces fit together to complete a picture, reading skills are dependent upon one another to make reading meaningful for students. The Reading Puzzle series helps you organize instruction to better develop students' core reading skills—including phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension—to make them successful readers.
Derived from the research-based strategies in Elaine K. McEwan's bestseller Teach Them ALL to Read: Catching the Kids Who Fall Through the Cracks, these standards-based, easy-to-use activities will set students on the course to reading success. This book offers practical techniques that include teacher modeling, guided practice, and independent application, and provides creative reproducibles and ready-to-use tools such as graphic organizers and visual prompts.
You can develop students' thinking skills, nurture their ability to meet the demands of any reading task, and strengthen students' comprehension by helping them:
- Activate prior knowledge
- Make connections as they read
- Infer meaning
- Predict, visualize, and ask questions
- Monitor and clarify
- Summarize their reading, and more!
Empower students with the ability to confidently explore virtually any topic, communicate and apply new information, and enjoy the benefits of lifetime reading!
