The B on Your Thumb is a book of rhymes and delightful ditties to boost early reading. Each rhyme teaches a particular sound, spelling or rule, and will delight young children with the silliness of the English language.
There is more to reading than the mechanics of sounds, spelling, grammar and even comprehension. Reading is, at its heart, a problem-solving exercise, one through which readers must learn to analyse and evaluate information from a variety of sources.
How can you help students find meaning in informational texts and become independent strategic readers and thinkers? This remarkable book gives teachers a wealth of effective strategies for inspiring students to think while they read all kinds of nonfiction.
