This compiles three popular "get-started" resources from educator Ruth Beechick: "A Home Start in Reading," "A Strong Start in Language," and "An Easy Start in Arithmetic."
Learn how to take the mystery out of teaching the early grades with this practical, down-to-earth guidebook. The book is divided into three sections that are tabbed for easy reference. The READING section tells how and when to begin phonics, and how to develop comprehension skills. The LANGUAGE section shows how to develop written language skills naturally, in the same way children learn oral language. The ARITHMETIC section explains how to teach understanding of math concepts, and not just memorization of facts.
Bonus: A removable 2-sided wall chart for phonics and arithmetic.
