The Reading Edge: Using Phonics Strategically to Teach Reading (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


"You mean the vowel rule doesn't always work?" "That's right." "Then why did they make the rule?" This timely book shows teachers how to build word-attack skills that help children recognize patterns in English and understand how printed words and letters fit together. Teachers learn powerful strategies for making decoding a natural part of good classroom instruction and laying a strong foundation for reading success. They learn how to teach specific phonics skills within a rich learning environment. "The Reading Edge" evolves around an explicit instruction model that has been used successfully by the authors for more than thirty years. Teachers will find the tools they need to help children become enthusiastic readers: blending, word family, rhyming and onset and rime strategies; word-attack skills that help children understand how the printed word works; approaches that can be incorporated successfully regardless of teaching style; assessment tips that help identify student strengths, weaknesses and gaps; and suggestions for adapting for ESL and special needs programmes. Classroom anecdotes throughout this highly readable book put literacy, phonics and learning in context.

They show teachers how to identify what children know about reading and writing and where to take them next. They illustrate how to teach phonics strategically and inspire children to become better, more confident readers. Innovative approaches and ready-to-use tools include assessment and tracking sheets, as well as playful activities involving "silly sentences" and mini worksheets.
