Overview

The third edition of Literacy in the Early Grades: A Successful Start for PreK-4 Readers and Writers is the book that helps you get every student off to a successful start in literacy. Gail Tompkins, the leader in the field of literacy education, focuses her attention exclusively on the needs of students in PreKindergarten through Grade 4, and on the teachers who will prepare them for reading and writing success. With unsurpassed classroom application in the form of authentic classroom vignettes, student work samples, minilessons, assessment tools, video case studies, and the Compendium of Instructional Procedures, the third edition continues to cover the information new and experienced teachers need to know to teach literacy effectively, and follows this information with the specific strategies to use in the classroom to develop successful readers and writers in the primary grades.
