AnnC's curator insight, September 14, 9:30 PM

Check for discrimination of similar sounding words.  Provide intense, motivating, and frequent instruction.  Build vocabulary from an early age.  Practice listening accuracy,  auditory sequencing, and phonological memory.  Try Fast ForWord program to building skills for reading.

Read-Alouds to Launch Reader’s Workshop | Scholastic.com

Read-Alouds to Launch Reader’s Workshop | Scholastic.com | Multicultural Children's Literature | Scoop.it
During the first few weeks of reader’s workshop, the focus is necessarily on introducing routines, building stamina, and exploring the classroom library.

How do I accomplish both goals at the same time? I use picture books that celebrate reading as a springboard into our discussions about reader’s workshop routines and expectations. Read on for my favorite picture books about reading and how I use them to launch our reader’s workshop.
