Basic Early Literacy Skills

Strategies and Lessons for Improving

"A teacher could pick up this book and immediately use the activities to help children improve. There is differentiation for each activity, ensuring that this book can be used successfully in the classroom." —Jessie Fries-Kraemer, Literacy Teacher

This practical, hands-on guide shows teachers how to use research-proven strategies and structured lessons to teach basic early reading skills. The authors provide an extensive array of lessons, strategies, tips, and supplementary materials to help educators strengthen students' skills in areas identified by the popular assessment system DIBELS (Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills).

Elementary school teachers can use DIBELS to quickly assess the critical skills underlying early reading success:

  • Letter naming fluency
  • Initial sound fluency
  • Phoneme segmentation fluency
  • Nonsense word fluency
  • Oral reading fluency

The materials are designed for students with any type of reading difficulty, including students with learning disabilities, but are equally appropriate for students of any ability level.
