Description

The ability to select just-right books is a key element in developing confident, successful, independent readers. Gail starts this mini-lesson with Joan's K-2 multiage students by modeling how she picks a pair of shoes that are a good fit for her. Having engaged the class, the sisters show how to use a similar five-step process to select appropriate books for a Daily Five book box: look at the book, consider the purpose and decide, am I interested in it? Do I comprehend it? Do I know most of the words? They show examples of successful and unsuccessful matches to clarify the children's understanding.

"I want what every teacher wants: effective teaching methods that can adapt as things change, and to lead our children to a lifetime of learning."

When her nose isn't buried in a book and her fingers aren't flying over the keyboard writing, you will likely find her golfing, gardening, or hiking with her husband and her puppy.
