The activities are ideal for the whole language classroom and their multi sensory approach makes them applicable to students of all learning styles.

The techniques in the book can be used to reinforce and review subject matter as well as to promote language, comprehension, and thinking skills. Organized sequentially, from simple to the more complex, the instructional strategies allow teachers and students to risk in increments as they try something for the first time.
