Words Their Way
Donald R. Bear

Letter and Picture Sorts for Emergent Spellers

Donald R. Bear, Marcia Invernizzi, Francine Johnston, Shane Templeton

We believe that the hands-on word sorting approach to word study is invaluable to you and your students. Broaden your word study understanding and instruction with this expanded word sorting tool for week by week implementation with emergent spellers (ages 1 - 7). This stage-specific companion volume toWords Their Way (R) Word Study for Phonics, Vocabulary, and Spelling Instruction provides a complete curriculum of assessments, reproducible sorts, and detailed directions for the teacher working with students in the emergent stage of spelling. New! This second edition boasts
• Targeted Learners sections that clarify which students will benefit most from the instruction
• An early bank of assessments to help you evaluate your students and pinpoint the most appropriate instruction
• Literature Connections to reinforce concepts being studied
This first volume introduces the idea of sorting through concept sort for students in the emergent stage of spelling development (Pre-K through Grade 1). The word study lesson plan format of demonstrate, sort, check, and reflect is expanded in this stage to include reading aloud and writing activities. The early concept sorting activities are followed with picture sorts that develop phonemic awareness and include activities for rhyming, syllabication, and sound play. Alphabet knowledge and letter recognition are then covered, along with sorts that look at concept of word in print, as well as poems, jingles and short text selections that can be shared with children. Students are then ushered into sorts that introduce beginning consonants with pictures, laying the foundation for the letter-name stage.

Reading Doesn't Matter Anymore
David Booth

Shattering the Myths of Literacy

In this timely, wise, and often witty book, eminent educator and author David Booth argues that teachers must redefine reading as an activity that embraces the needs and interests of students. Reading isn't just about Dick and Jane or great literature any more: it's about the Internet, comic books, technical manuals, graphic novels, iPods, and much more.

Booth outlines twelve simple steps to help teachers and parents alike revolutionize the way they view - and encourage - children's reading in all kinds of genres and formats. He argues forcefully that we must: redefine what reading means; include comics, magazines, manuals, along with novels in our reading programs; understand that technology is part of the new literacy; remember that story is the heart of literacy; help students build strong reading muscles; value the reading responses of young people; view writing as literacy; recognize the different ages and stages of individuals; explore how words work; turn printed texts into active learning; focus on literacy in every subject; welcome youngsters into the culture of literacy.

In some very personal reflections, the author reveals the decisive moments in his life that have shaped his approach to reading and learning. Lively anecdotes throughout the book create a highly readable narrative that makes a compelling case for recognizing the unique value of reading...almost anything.

The book concludes with over one-hundred literacy events that celebrate reading not just in school, but the world beyond.

Nonfiction Mentor Texts
Lynne R. Dorfman

Teaching Informational Writing Through Children's Literature, K-8

In their first book, Mentor Texts, Lynne Dorfman and Rose Cappelli demonstrated how teachers can use children's literature to guide and inspire student writers of narrative fiction and poetry. Now, they have turned their focus to nonfiction, identifying a wide range of mentor texts and showing how these models illustrate the key features of good writing. Lynne and Rose guide teachers through a variety of projects, samples, and classroom anecdotes that demonstrate how teachers can help students become more effective writers of good nonfiction. The Your Turn lessons at the end of each chapter use the gradual release of responsibility model to guide and empower student writers. Teachers will find especially helpful the information on how to select appropriate mentor texts from among the sometimes overwhelming offerings of children's literature. Each Your Turn lesson encourages reflection and motivates students to think about what they've learned, the purpose of learning and practicing a skill or strategy, and how they might use this technique in the future. Additionally, An Author's Voice provides encouragement and advice from published authors of children's nonfiction. One of the most valuable features of Nonfiction Mentor Texts is the treasure chest of books organized according to chapter. This list includes every title mentioned in the book, as well as a host of other titles that teachers can use to help students learn about quality nonfiction writing--building content, organizing text, developing voice, enhancing style, using punctuation effectively--and from which students can draw topic ideas. Lynne and Rose have either read or used all of the featured books in their classrooms and have selected titles that meet the needs of students at varying levels. Teachers will be able to find the just-right book for each student.

Anatomy 2
Flash Cards

300 full-color cards on 14 human body systems, covering parts that could not be covered on our first set of cards. To truly offer the benefit of flash cards for memory retention, we included the maximum number of body part labels per card that short-term memory can retain and move to long-term memory. This second set adds a few systems beautifully illustrated by award winning medical illustrator Vincent Perez. With images and numbered labels naming parts on one side and just the numbered parts on the other, students can easily test themselves or their study partner. There is nothing else that compares in quality, number of cards and price.

Suggested uses:
Students - establish your core memory of human anatomy whether you will be a nurse, physical therapists, pre-med, or even a massage therapist
