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.

This resource promotes fluency with specific techniques to help all learners read smoothly and quickly. Original and engaging reading passages include a quick-reference guide for assigning passages appropriate for individual reading levels. Use the reading passages with tested strategies that include:

  • Modeling good oral reading
  • Providing support for readers
  • Offering ample practice opportunities
  • Encouraging fluency through phrased reading

Empower students with the confidence to explore virtually any topic and enjoy the lifetime benefits of reading!
