Breathing New Life into Book Clubs

Sonja Cherry-Paul, Dana Johansen


Essential strategies for creating, sustaining, and improving classroom book clubs.
Reading to Make a Difference

Lester L. Laminack, Katie Kelly


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.

Units of Study in Phonics, Grade K Bundle

Lucy Calkins


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.

Units of Study in Phonics, Grade 1 Bundle

Lucy Calkins


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.
