I had to read this book The Fluent Reader: Oral Reading Strategies for Building Word Recognition, Fluency, and Comprehension. Don't be deceived! The title sounds a little dry, but it's a super easy read and FULL of great ideas. My favorite part about it, is that all the ideas are so SIMPLE! They take little prep time and they are all research-based and common sense. I'm very glad I read this book.
Since I know that I could read all these ideas, just to forget them by October, I used Post-It notes to help me remember things I particularly liked in the book. This way, I don't have to keep track of another page with notes--it's all in one place. Plus, I don't have to re-read the book to find the strategies I want to use, I can just flip through and read the sticky notes. Obviously a highlighter would serve the same purpose, but I didn't want to mark in this one since it's my school's copy.
If you are looking for a quick, easy summer read that will motivate you to teach literacy, I highly recommend this one!
