I AM coming back to this blog with an emphasis on early (k-3) reading skills. There continue to be way too many 3rd graders who are not reading at 3rd grade level.
We need to examine the tools we have to teach early reading skills and why teachers and even special educators or Level 2 RTI teachers are NOT using these tools.
I continue to look for answers and suggesting helpful resource links.
Today I want to recommend a book I'm currently reading: Unlocking Literacy: Effective Decoding and Spelling Instructions (2010) by Marcia K. Henry, who has worked in the field of reading instruction for struggling readers for more than 50 years. This book is recommended by G. Reid Lyon, Louisa Moats, Virginia Berninger, Donald Deshler, Keith Stanovich, Susan Brady and Cheryl Gabig.
