“What a clever collection of activities! As a long-time 4th & 5th grade classroom teacher in a Title 1 school, this appeals to me so much for my struggling students. Awareness is power, and even without a formal diagnosis I can think of so many thirsty students that would drink up this opportunity to work with an adult on these fun exercises!”–Frances Anne Reinosa, BCLAD-Credentialed Teacher, San Luis Obispo, CA
“As a teacher in the regular education classroom as well as the special education classroom, I find myself trying to reach each student in a way that will speak to them. It’s challenging and time-consuming to create something new and different for everyone, but this book does that. This book has it all–from multi-sensory handwriting cues that support letter formation, to audition activities that boost phonemic awareness, and various games that support students as they master the phonological awareness skills necessary to become proficient readers. It’s a wonderful toolbox for a teacher to have in the classroom.”–Adriann Crowe M.A.S Ed, Kindergarten Teacher, New Bern, NC
“Students with special needs can be overwhelmed by the amount of information and graphics on a page. This book features activities that are spot on for students: interesting and engaging yet not overwhelming. The fun instruction symbols, combined with words will also give students the independence to read and remember what they are supposed to do on each page. What a great resource!”–Christen Stanley, Special Education Teacher, North Little Rock, AR
