Dr. Julia B. Lindsey's evidence-based routines help young readers decode words efficiently so they can spend more energy on comprehending—and enjoying—what they read! Sure to appeal to those following the "science of reading," given its emphasis on the English language and how it works (orthography, morphology, etc.). Follows a clear, developmental continuum, from decoding to crack one-syllable words to chunking to crack multisyllabic words. Contextualizes foundational skills by exploring their connections to fluency and comprehension, cultural responsiveness, and joyful learning.
