On Solid Ground: Strategies for Teaching Reading K-3
Enter Sharon Taberski's classroom and enter a world where children take pride, take risks, and most of all, take reading seriously. It's not utopia by any means; Sharon deals with the same issues other teachers face: limited resources, tremendous diversity, and the constant threat of overcrowding. What makes her exceptional is her clear vision. She is systematic in her thinking, wise in her decision making. Most of all, she understands her role as a teacher and goals for each student. This is why Sharon is on solid ground.
In her book, Sharon shares what she's gained in her twenty years of working with children and teachers. It's organized not around a set of prescribed skills, but around a series of interconnected interactions with the learner:
On Solid Ground is informed by current thinking, yet loaded with advice, booklists, ready-to-use reproducibles, and-of course-the words and work of real children. Sharon's approach is clear, sensible, timeless. You'll turn to her book throughout your career.

This was one of those, but if I was a new teacher, I would probably read the whole book! Great author! Read full review
