Educational Computer Games and Apps for Kids PALS Reading Reading Products for Educators PALS Reading is a structured, peer-mediated reading activity appropriate for students in preschool through grade 6 and high school. All students in a class are divided into pairs. Each member of the pair takes turns being coach and reader and are awarded points for good reading and coaching. As the reader reads aloud, the coach listens and provides corrective feedback. The time commitment in the classroom for implementing PALS reading each week differs slightly depending on the grade level and instructors have some flexibility in the scheduling. In Kindergarten PALS, children practice letter-sound correspondence, decoding, phonological awareness, and sightwords. First-grade and grades 2-6 PALS emphasize decoding and reading fluency. Partner reading Paragraph shrinking Prediction relay Re-telling High School PALS is similar to PALS at grades 2-6 but uses more age-appropriate motivational and helping strategies.

Online Reading Activities | ReadTheory National Reading Panel Note: The National Reading Panel was convened by Congress in 1999 and has not been reconvened. The information on this page is provided for historical purposes only. The page is not being updated. Overview In 1997, Congress asked the NICHD, through its Child Development and Behavior Branch, to work with the U.S. The 14-member Panel included members from different backgrounds, including school administrators, working teachers, and scientists involved in reading research. On April 13, 2000, the National Reading Panel concluded its work and submitted its final reports. Topic Areas Specifically, Congress asked the Panel to: In addition, the National Reading Panel held public hearings where people could give their opinions on what topics the panel should study. The Panel considered roughly 100,000 reading studies published since 1966, and another 10,000 published before that time. The Panel found that a combination of techniques is effective for teaching children to read: More Information

LRI About the Curriculum | Literacy Resources Inc All versions of our phonemic awareness curricula are based on the curriculum that Dr. Heggerty originally developed for his own classroom. The daily lessons in all versions contain the same ten skills: Letter Naming, Rhyming, Onset Fluency, Blending, Identifying Final and/or Medial Sounds, Segmenting, Adding Phonemes, Deleting Phonemes, Substituting Phonemes, and Language Awareness. Each curriculum is intended to be completed with a whole class group. It has been our experience that students who are struggling can benefit from multiple, repeated exposures to these lessons. This should be a fun-filled time. (Links to an external site.)
NSTA News 10/29/2004 - Roxanne Greitz Miller and Robert C. Calfee What does it mean to “write to learn science,” and why should we use writing as a vehicle for science learning when other alternatives exist? Many studies have examined the role of writing in the learning process, demonstrating that writing, in conjunction with other activities such as reading and hands-on experiences, contributes to greater critical thinking, thoughtful consideration of ideas, and better concept learning. We would like to add a basic and universal observation to these findings supporting the use of writing, particularly in science: writing makes thinking visible. Few activities can achieve what writing can in science—enabling students to self-assess complex content knowledge and allowing the teacher to assess the student in two dimensions: overall writing ability and specific content area achievement. A CORE Framework The CORE Model incorporates four elements: Connect, Organize, Reflect, and Extend. Acknowledgment

Denton, Children's Learning Institute, University of Texas Health Science Center Houston The National Research Council (NRC), a group of experts convened to examine reading research and address the serious national problem of reading failure, concluded in their landmark report Preventing Reading Difficulties in Young Children (Snow, Burns, & Griffin, 1998) that most reading problems can be prevented by providing effective instruction and intervention in preschool and in the primary grades. The NRC noted that for students to learn to read well they must a) understand how sounds are represented by print and be able to apply this understanding to read and spell words, b) practice reading enough to become fluent readers, c) learn new vocabulary words, and d) learn to self-monitor when reading to make sure what they read makes sense and to correct their own errors. Teach the Essentials Effective reading teachers teach skills, strategies, and concepts. Monitoring Student Progress
