Yes, Shannon, it is very beneficial to read about the things that we are seeing in our classroom and understand what's going on with the child (or at least troubleshoot and have an idea about what's going on with the child). I also understood the article much better after the lecture and was able to make a real-world connection. The student that I mentioned in my previous post is really wanting to begin reading chapter books. I have several students in my class who are in 4th and 5th grade level novels. During our silent reading time he try to avoid the books that i suggest for him (they're obviously a much lower level) Does anyone have a suggestion for how I could make him feel more comfortable reading books that are at his independent level? Or know if any books/series that he could read, but would still be interesting for him?

      Melanie, I agree with you that the article was difficult to read without the background or prior knowledge that the lecture provided :)

        I agree with you Martha. It is a miraculous occurrence. What do you believe to be the key strategies or foundational instruction practices that aid students in the pre-k classroom?

          In the pre-k classroom, I believe that reading each day is a critical component. It is important for pre-school teachers to talk to and with children every day for vocabulary development and to ask... more

        What about graphic novels? I think about those for students that need higher content lower readability.
