This guide shows parents how to combine story reading, phonics, and writing to help their children develop into skilled and motivated readers. The guide discusses how to prepare children for reading success; how to use children's literature to promote learning and enjoyment; why combining book experiences and phonics is better than using either approach alone; ways to use writing to enhance children's reading progress; why reading aloud is important; and which books to use and where to find them. Chapters in the guide are: (1) "The 'Great Debate'"; (2) "Acquiring Language and Learning To Read"; (3) "Early Readers: What Can They Teach Us?"; (4) "What Works? One Successful Program"; (5) "Using 'Real Books' in Your Program"; (6) "Preparing for Formal Lessons"; (7) "Book Reading and Strategy Development"; (8) "Learning about Letters, Sounds, and Words"; (9) "Story Writing in the Reading Lesson"; and (10) "Putting It All Together: A Sample Lesson."

Phonics the Easy Way

A Clear and Comprehensive Guide to the Most Up-to-date Methods for Teaching Your Child to Read

Clear and comprehensive, this is the only book for parents that includes and explains the new government guidelines in detail. There has been a shake-up in the way children are taught to read in primary schools in England. The government has accepted a review that backs the use of a method known as "synthetic phonics," where children are taught letter sounds (c-a-t spells cat), not the names of letters (cee-ay-tee), before they move onto simple books. Phonics is already used in a lot of schools, but not necessarily in a systematic or prescriptive way. These changes—which are being introduced at the end of 2007—will mean that all children will be taught this way before the age of five. Phonics: A Reading Guide for Parents ties in to this new government literacy strategy and is a core guide to help you to teach your child to read using phonics. It follows the latest recommendations of the DFES and the Primary National Strategy, reflecting the new, fundamentally changed, teaching guidelines.

Phonics for Parents and Other Care-Givers

This book provides a guided, comprehensive program for any parent or care-giver who wants to teach a preschool child how to read. The author, a life-long teacher, enabled all 3 of his own children to read independently by age three-and-a-half. The method he used, Systematic Phonics, is the method used throughout the book. In this phonics program, there are no lists of sight words for your child to memorize. Instead, you will teach your child to read unfamiliar words by decoding them: matching their letters with appropriate sounds and then blending those sounds together. Using this phonics program, you will gradually reveal to your child the complex code that underlies all competent reading and spelling. In doing so (and this is crucially important) you will make reading and spelling logical for him. As he begins to understand that logic, he will delight in the code, and he will want to learn more about it.The author will guide you through each step of this 12 to 18-month program. You will have the satisfaction of knowing that you personally provided your child with one of the most important intellectual skills she will ever need to master. Who could perform this task for her better than you?

Units of Study in the Primary Classroom

Primary-grade teachers face an important challenge: teaching children how to read while enabling them to build good habits so they fall in love with reading. Many teachers find the independent reading workshop to be the component of reading instruction that meets this challenge because it makes it possible to teach the reading skills and strategies children need and guides them toward independence, intention, and joy as readers. In Growing Readers, Kathy Collins helps teachers plan for independent reading workshops in their own classrooms. She describes the structure of the independent reading workshop and other components of a balanced literacy program that work together to ensure young students grow into strong, well-rounded readers. Kathy outlines a sequence of possible units of study for a yearlong curriculum. Chapters are devoted to the individual units of study and include a sample curriculum as well as examples of mini-lessons and reading conferences. There are also four “Getting Ready” sections that suggest some behind-the-scenes work teachers can do to prepare for the units. Topics explored in these units include: print and comprehension strategies; reading in genres such as poetry and nonfiction; connecting in-school reading and out-of-school reading; developing the strategies and habits of lifelong readers. A series of planning sheets and management tips are presented throughout to help ensure smooth implementation. We want our students to learn to read, and we want them to love to read. To do this we need to lay a foundation on which children build rich and purposeful reading lives that extend beyond the school day. The ideas found in Growing Readers create the kind of primary classrooms where that happens.
