Daily Word Ladders: Grades 4-6
I bought this book to use as a warm up with my tutoring students. They LOVE it and so do I!!!!! They look forward to it every time, and even though it is the same type of activity every time, they still love it. There are some words on the ladder that are very easy, however some are challenging and they have to use a dictionary or really think about what the answer might be. This is a GREAT ...

Mosaic of Thought, Second Edition: The Power of Comprehension Strategy Instruction
Ellin Oliver Keene
It'll Make You Think!
During my credential program, I heard and read about think alouds and comprehension strategies, but didn't get to see those in practice in the classroom. I knew they were important, but didn't know how to implement them. This book offered practical advice (for multiple grade levels) that will help me begin to teach these strategies in the fall. The authors describe a clear structure for teaching ...
The Fluent Reader: Oral Reading Strategies for Building Word Recognition, Fluency, and Comprehension
Timothy V. Rasinski
The Fluent Reader
The Fluent Reader is Rasinski's definitive work on the subject. It is a book that should be on every grade school teacher's shelf. The strategies developed in this book are applicable to any age or grade level. Since fluency is directly correlated with comprehension, it is imperative that children learn to read fluently as soon as they know how to decode. This book shows how to make that happen!
The book that I ordered arrived right on time, and was in excellent condition. I would recommend this vendor.
Guiding Readers and Writers: Teaching Comprehension, Genre, and Content Literacy

My only regret is that I ordered it the ...

Even 4th graders in North Carolina LOVE Chicken Nugget Man!
Although this book is recommended for third graders getting ready to take the EOG (End of Grade) test in North Carolina, I found that my fourth graders really enjoyed it! The comprehension skills and strategies are so well included that the students didn't realize we were reviewing things that they had learned during the year! They loved the pictures, which I intend to enlarge next year; ...
Comprehension Connections: Bridges to Strategic Reading
Perfect for literacy teachers
I think I have mentioned Comprehension Connections: Bridges to Strategic Reading by Tanny McGregor before, but it is an invaluable tool for any language arts teacher!

I really do have a weird neighbor, who I know very ...

Well worth the investment!
I teach students in grades 6-8 who are struggling in reading. These articles are a perfect one day lesson to teach a reading skill. The book is organized by strategy: main idea, inference, sequencing, using context clues, etc. and then by reading level with increasing difficulty to reinforce the skill and stretch the student's reading skills. I often will use the lowest readability article to ...
