...As you read, always be on the lookout for lines or passages that jump out or speak to you. If you can write in your book, underline, star, or highlight these passages. If you can?t, use small Post-It notes or just keep track of page numbers and identifying words on a separate piece of paper.

...I teach a curriculum that gives students the basic skills needed for a good reading foundation. This curriculum includes phonemic awareness, which is the study of all the sounds of the English language, combined with decoding, reading fluency, and comprehension. I am a firm believer that phonics instruction combined with a whole language approach gives students a great foundation in reading.
