Reading skills and strategies aren't an automatic process for most students. Great Habits, Great Readers highlights how to teach students habits that lead to the skills of successful, fluent, reading for students in Grades K-4. Outlining these strategies, systems, and lessons, the 'Reading-by-Habit' model builds a bridge between Common Core and the real-life needs of your class. Five styles of lessons are included: read-aloud, comprehension skills, phonics, guided reading, and independent reading. In addition, a DVD with over forty video clips provides a visual example of what this style of reading instruction looks like. 457 pages, indexed, softcover. Slightly Imperfect.
