    Do you want a reading program without a reading curriculum? Or maybe a reading program in which the kids enjoy the "great" books, discuss them at the dinner table, and don't even realize they're in a reading "program"? If either answer is yes, this book is for you. And I do mean for you. Reading Strands is designed for the teacher to use. It shows you how to teach your children to appreciate fiction. Author Dave Marks wants our children to develop a love for reading, first and foremost. Reading should be fun for a child, something he/she eagerly looks forward to. They need to share their reading experience and enjoyment with others, also. Those around them need to express an interest in what they're reading and their opinion of what they've read. Through oral discussion, Dave shows us how to help our children get more out of reading and begin to read for deeper understanding. Reading Strands contains simple Socratic dialogue samples, based on Bloom's taxonomy, showing you how to discuss fiction with your children based on their age level. Literary components and terms are explained so that you can, at appropriate age levels, discuss these intelligently with your children. Mr. Marks also cautions us that, to some extent, "you are what you read." He wants us to become serious about selecting the types of reading materials we want our children to "consume" based on what kind of people we want them to become. To aid us in selecting books, Reading Strands contains numerous reading lists: suggested books based on grade level, a graded list of books popular with reading teachers, a listing of children's favorite books, Coretta Scott King Award Books, Caldecott Medal winners, Newbery Medal winners, Children's Library recommendations, and a list of Great Classics. Whew! Even if you didn't use this approach as your basic reading program, employing the ideas contained in Reading Strands would greatly enhance your children's overall enjoyment and understanding of literature. 138 pgs, pb.

    You fill out a passport when you visit other countries; why not track the places you visit in literature the same way? These inexpensive passport-themed booklets make fun little personal reading logs. Each measures 4 ½" x 5 ½" and includes 24 pgs. Students can personalize the first page with some information about themselves, then fill out the rest of the booklet's pages as they plow through their reading list. Each page offers lines to record some basic information about the book as well as an open space to draw or write more. Covers are assorted bold colors and the whole thing is small enough to fit into a larger notebook, lapbook, or scrapbook when complete. – Jess

    A special little journal where your child or student can record book titles, authors, # of pages, date read, draw a little picture and write a few sentences about the story. It has a paper cover, so it is an inexpensive option for a classroom. I think this would be one of those little items parents keep to look back on to see what your student liked at a certain age. Do one every year! It has space to write about 29 books. Green cover, 7.5x9" 28pp ~Sara

    This book provides practice for older readers to enhance their reading skills, using a variety of different texts similar to what they would come across in their daily lives. It is divided into two parts: Key Reading Skills and Reading Texts. The first part focuses on specific skills, including scanning, predicting, working out word meanings, understanding a writer's purpose, understanding complex sentences, interpreting graphs and tables, inferring, and reading critically. Each unit focuses on one of those skills, with a brief explanation on what the skill is, how to use it, and why you might need to use it. A follow-up activity provides practice in using the skill, with an example text to read, and a series of related short-answer questions to complete. In the second part, students are given a variety of texts, including excerpts from textbooks, articles, novels, web pages, film reviews and cartoons. Three groups of activities accompany every text, one to complete before reading the text, one designed to test recall, and one intended for a student's personal response to the text. All in all, the book has a very no-nonsense visual appearance, with black-and-white pages and few illustrations. If your previous reading comprehension program does not cover this age level, or you feel that your junior high student could use some additional reading skills practice, you might consider this one. 30 units (lessons) total, with answers included in the back. Reproducible for classroom or family use only. – Jess

    Read faster and retain more of what you read! Using a variety of diverse reading material such as editorials, letters, and primary source materials from several core subject areas, these lessons are geared to improve the student's speed of reading and overall comprehension, which should result in better test-taking skills. This workbook contains sixteen lessons focusing on specific reading skills including vocabulary building, eye movements, reading purpose, previewing, reading in thought, skimming and scanning for the main idea and details, study reading and memory, and how to improve your reading in specific subject areas such as math, social studies, science, and literature. Each lesson has five exercises. The lesson begins with a teacher page describing the skill, which could also be read by the student. Then students work through an interpretation exercise, perception exercise, comprehension exercise, and two stories with questions for the student to answer to determine their average comprehension score and effective word-per-minute speed. Answers are included at the end of the book. This workbook could easily be used for self-study by an individual student or in a "class" situation, as the exercise pages are reproducible. What I like best about this workbook is that it is very realistic in what words we should be able to read per minute (not skim or scan per minute). While other products make loftier promises, this workbook states that the maximum number of words read are 800-900 words per minute. Overall, this is a very thorough course that will teach you how to speed read without sacrificing reading comprehension. – Jess

    If you're looking for quality books that girls would love to read, this booklet is a helpful resource.

    A record, a challenge, an encouragement! This little hardback reading log is all of these. The challenge is to read (and record) 1000 books to your young children. The first few pages provide a little nudge of “you can do this” encouragement along with space to record your child’s firsts and favorites. The log pages have numbered lines (the number per page varies) and tidbits of encouragement and quotes. The plentiful illustrations are young-child oriented and fun. (One father robin holds a brightly colored umbrella and his baby robin wears galoshes.) Sprinkled through the book are a few pages of preschool education nuggets. The book concludes with a list of kindergarten skills, a top 10 favorite books page and a congratulations page. A pocket on the inside back cover provides milestone (every 200 books) stickers and an accordion growth chart that links height with number of books “read.” What a wonderful resource and keepsake to build together over time! ~ Janice
