Karen Meyers Stangl believes the best way for children to learn to read is to teach decoding skills in the context of meaningful learning experiences. To help teachers achieve this, she's put together activities for pre-readers, emerging readers, and developing readers. For every letter of the alphabet there are dozens of pre-reading activities that include a tactile introduction to each letter, writing exercises, games, as well as links to math, science, social studies, art, phys ed, and music. For emergent and developing readers you'll find sorting and manipulative activities, puzzles and games, and independent activity task cards. Several lists of children's books is included to help teachers choose authentic literature to reinforce sound awareness— from alphabet books to poetry anthologies.
