Description - 100 Activities for Developing Fluent Readers by Barbara J. Fox

This book offers readers a plethora of activities for teaching the five components of a good reading program: phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension. Unlike other books that describe a series of activities without any clear point, each chapter in this book explains how activities contribute to fluent reading. New and practicing teachers will find an overview of what each component looks like from a classroom perspective with suggestions for informal assessment. Also included are best practices for teaching each of the five components, best practices for teaching English language learners, and best practices for working with struggling readers.
