This manual provides activities for supplemental instruction in instructional areas that research has identified as critical to early reading success (Snow, Burns, & Griffin, 1998). These instructional elements include: phonological awareness; fluent reading in a variety of texts; comprehension strategies and vocabulary development; decoding strategies; and word analysis. To improve their reading proficiency, students who struggle with reading need intensive, systematic, and explicit instruction in these areas in addition to their regular classroom reading instruction. The activities in this manual are intended to supplement to the regular classroom reading program and to provide the additional practice struggling readers need to develop basic reading strategies.
The research on which these materials were based was supported in part by grant P50 HD052117 from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD).
