  • 2. To the Learner READING for Bright Minds has been writtenespecially for you. May the activities in this bookgive you an exciting adventure as you learn to put thesounds of letters together and read words on yourown. Welcome to the world of reading! The Author
  • 3. To the Teacher Reading is an important life skill. Young children, who are exposed to readingmaterials, who see reading as an act, and who are read to, are often those who aremore equipped to acquire the other skills necessary to learning. The ability to readopens up an individual’s horizons and makes the enjoyment of learning possible. A good strategy for teaching reading is the whole-part-whole process. Inthis strategy, reading instruction starts with the reading or sharing of a whole,meaningful text. This is followed by the teaching of a reading skill or strategy withinthe context of the text. Then, in the final stages of the lesson, the children apply theskill as they go back to the text. This book is intended for teaching reading in a whole-part-whole strategy. It issuggested that the teacher or parent begins a lesson with a story, poem, or any typeof literature the child will understand. Whole language strategies and subskills, suchas letter identification, phonemic awareness, and decoding, are incorporated intothe theme of each lesson. Mastery of the whole language strategies and subskills isreinforced through the activities in this book. I hope that READING for Bright Minds will help you provide meaningfullearning experiences for the children you teach. The Author
