Be yourself like Molly Lou Melon no matter what a bully may do. Molly Lou Melon is short and clumsy, has buck teeth, and has a voice that sounds like a bullfrog being squeezed by a boa constrictor. She doesn't mind. Her grandmother has always told her to walk proud, smile big, and sing loud, and she takes that advice to heart. But then Molly Lou has to start in a new school. A horrible bully picks on her on the very first day, but Molly Lou Melon knows just what to do about that.

Parents and teachers know that reading aloud to children is important, and many parents of young children read aloud to them daily. However, when children start to read on their own, parents often stop reading aloud. But, the early elementary school years, when children are learning how to read on their own, is a perfect time to build vocabulary and comprehension skills through read aloud and Active Reading. Raising an Active Reader makes clear the process of learning to read, how Active Reading fits into raising strong readers, and the behaviors that adults can do to encourage strong language, comprehension, and vocabulary in children in grades K-3. This book extends on the ABCs of Active Reading (Ask Questions, Build Vocabulary, and make Connections) as they apply to older children and picture books, chapter books, and novels. Raising an Active Reader provides parents and teachers with the knowledge and skills to engage elementary school-aged children (grades K-3) in Active Reading with examples, clear explanations, and ideas for making one-on-one or small group read aloud sessions a powerful way to build children’s early literacy and language skills, all while creating a lifelong love of reading.

Increasingly, educators are recognizing that for children to thrive intellectually they need socially and emotionally healthy classrooms. Conveniently, this is exactly what parents have always wanted for their children--classrooms that offer and grow positive relationships and behavior, emotional self-regulation, and a sense of well-being. Using the guiding principles from Peter Johnston's best-selling professional resources, Choice Words and Opening Minds, Peter and six colleagues began a journey to create just such classrooms--environments in which children meaningfully engage with each other through reading, writing, making, and discussing books. In Engaging Literate Minds, you'll discover how these teachers struggled and succeeded in building such classrooms. Inside you'll find the following: Practical ways to develop a caring learning community and children's socio-emotional competence Powerful teaching practices from real classrooms Engaging ways to encourage inquiry and student agency Suggestions on how to use formative assessment in everyday teaching practices Helpful research behind the classroom practices and children's development Ways to help students inspire and support each other Building a just, caring, literate society has never been more important than it is today. By embracing the ideas and teaching strategies in Engaging Literate Minds, you can help children to become socially, emotionally, and intellectually healthy. Not only do these classroom practices develop the skills to achieve district benchmarks and beyond, they help develop children's humanity.

Alex just has to convince his mom to let him have an iguana, so he puts his arguments in writing. He promises that she won't have to feed it or clean its cage or even see it if she doesn't want to. Of course Mom imagines life with a six-foot-long iguana eating them out of house and home. Alex's reassurances: It takes fifteen years for an iguana to get that big. I'll be married by then and probably living in my own house. and his mom's replies: How are you going to get a girl to marry you when you own a giant reptile? will have kids in hysterics as the negotiations go back and forth through notes. And the lively, imaginative illustrations show their polar opposite dreams of life with an iguana.

Research and experience show that when teachers give children choice in what they write about, students' engagement in their writing increases. So imagine what can happen when you offer them choices about what genres to write in and what kinds of voices to write from. The possibilities are unlimited, and the strength and depth of the connection that students make to a subject can be profound. In Writing Without Boundaries you'll find out how to unlock this potential in all your students as they discover what it means to write with purpose. Writing Without Boundaries gives you everything you need to get started teaching multigenre writing. Suzette Youngs and Diane Barone demonstrate why it works, providing the rationale, the research, and examples of completed student work. Then they take you inside classrooms to show how they and other teachers implement multimodal papers and how these lessons in topic selection, organization, audience, planning, and presentation will forever change how primary and intermediate students approach writing. You'll discover how the writing workshop model can help you coordinate the efforts of your whole class even while you support each student in selecting from more than 60 genres to communicate their interests. Best of all, Writing Without Boundaries includes classroom-tested units of study that use multigenre writing to enhance and extend your curriculum across the disciplines. These units give students the chance to explore content from several perspectives as they: write and speak from the point of view of historical figures compose biographies of famous or personally meaningful figures investigate historical situations respond to literature. With its emphasis on choice, voice, and audience, Writing Without Boundaries cultivates students' familiarity with genres while also helping them understand how real-world readers and writers communicate through genre and how a single topic can be seen, and written about, from many, many perspectives. Show students the power of combining genres. Read Writing Without Boundaries and open them up to a new world of possibilities.

Lester and Reba not only provide us with a bold new framework for weaving read-alouds seamlessly into the fabric of the classroom, they also show us how to do it with grace and art. At the heart of their work are richly annotated lists of read-alouds for a variety of purposes. The authors' intimate knowledge and experience with these books make the annotations sing. - Lucy Calkins Open this book and invite the richness, the excitement of story and poetry into your classroom every single day. Take note, chapter by chapter, of the endless possibilities and ways to steer your students toward the powerful enchantment of books. Laminack and Wadsworth ask you to never forget "the power of literacy in the lives of learners," and this book will serve as a perfect reminder, time and time again. - Rebecca Kai Dotlich, author of Lemonade Sun and Other Poems of Summer The read-aloud of yesteryear was often limited in its ambition and application - a well-intended routine for getting students' attention or settling them down. But today's read-aloud is a vibrant, deliberate part of good teaching, an essential, effective strategy for introducing sophisticated ideas to young learners throughout the school day by immersing them in rich language and literate behaviors. The influence of reading aloud can be profound, and Learning Under the Influence of Language and Literature shows you how to plan for and implement the read-aloud for maximum instructional effect. Learning Under the Influence of Language and Literature revolutionizes the read-aloud. Lester Laminack and Reba Wadsworth lay out six types of read-alouds each of which targets key instructional goals, including: addressing standards in the curriculum building community demonstrating the craft of writing enriching vocabulary enticing children to read independently modeling fluent reading. Whether you read aloud once a day, or six times a day, Laminack and Wadsworth give you all the strategies you need to make the read-aloud a successful and effective way to lead your students to new understandings. You'll discover how, why, and when to read aloud, and find both specific suggestions for planning instruction around it and numerous ideas for entry points into it. Best of all, they provide an extensively annotated list of four hundred titles to use with each of the six types of read-aloud, including ample suggestions for how each fits within the reading and writing curriculum.
