The transformation that happens during kindergarten is astonishing. At the start of your year, many of your children will be holding their books upside down and backwards and making letters look like squiggles, but by the end the year, they will be reading and writing for their own important purposes. Phonics instruction is at the center of this transformation.

Second grade is a year of immense growth. Over the course of the year, second graders go from reading early chapter books like Fly Guy to longer, more complicated books like Magic Treehouse. It’s the year that most kids get hooked on a series, fall in love with characters, and follow them on all sorts of adventures. In writing, they start the year with four or five sentences per page and end the year with ten or twelve sentences filling up a multi-page booklet. Second-grade phonics is about closing the gap between what kids can read and what they can write conventionally.

For first graders, phonics is all-important. In this one year, students are expected to go from reading little books comprised of just a few pages to reading early chapter books. In writing, too, there are ambitious expectations—children begin writing a few lines on a couple of pages and end the year writing books with chapters—filling up multiple lines on a page and organizing their writing into sections.

Reading to Make a Difference
Books as bridges enable readers to speak freely, think deeply, and take action.  In Reading to Make a Difference, Lester and Katie build on the work of Rudine Sims Bishop, extending the notion of books as windows, mirrors, and doors. They show you how to move beyond exposing your students to diverse children’s literature by offering an instructional framework that is applicable to any topic and can be adapted to your own classroom or community.
