  • To the Learner READING for Bright Minds has been writtenespecially for you. May the activities in this book giveyou an exciting adventure as you learn the sounds ofall the letters and read words on your own. Welcometo the world of reading! The Author
  • To the Teacher Reading is an important life skill. Young children who are exposed to reading materials, see reading as an act, and are read to are often those who are more equipped to acquire the other skills necessary for learning. The ability to read opens up an individual’s horizons and makes the enjoyment of learning possible. A good strategy for teaching reading is the whole-part-whole process. In this 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 within the context of the text. Then, in the final stages of the lesson, the children apply the skill as they go back to the text. This book is intended for teaching reading in a whole-part-whole strategy. It is suggested that the teacher or parent begins a lesson with a story, poem, or any type of literature the child will understand. Whole language strategies and subskills, such as letter identification, phonemic awareness, and decoding, are incorporated into the theme of each lesson. Mastery of the whole language strategies and subskills is reinforced through the activities in this book. I hope that READING for Bright Minds will help you provide meaningful learning experiences for the children you teach. The Author
