Acknowledging that phonics is a necessary tool for helping children become independent readers, this practical, up-to-date book ensures readers learn strategies supported by current research--helps ready future teachers for today's standards-based educational system and the expectations of administrators, parents, and others. This book incorporates current best practices in phonemic awareness, word families, letter-sound patterns, and multi-letter groups into 96 practical, research-based activities. Coverage addresses the needs of children who have difficulty identifying words in context, as well as those whose first language is not English. By focusing on transferable teaching strategies rather than rote letter/sound learning, this book reshapes how future teachers will introduce this critical component of reading to tomorrow's classrooms. For prospective teachers of grades K-5.

I can only say that I was quemed (pleased) with this: ...
"From her misspelling of snaping for snapping, we can infer that Shania is still learning how to add ending to words that require
doubling the last consonant." p161
— Unfortunately, this is a common error. It's not only a spelling error but also a usage error since "to snape" is a verb in its own right:
1. (Shipbuilding) To bevel the end of a timber to fit against an inclined surface.
2. to nip, injure, afflict
3. to be hard upon, rebuke, snub, criticize
Big difference between snaping and snapping.
