Read Pam Allyn's posts on the Penguin Blog The books to read aloud to children at the important moments in their lives. In What to Read When, award-winning educator Pam Allyn celebrates the power of reading aloud with children. In many ways, books provide the first opportunity for children to begin to reflectively engage with and understand the world around them. Not only can parents entertain their child and convey the beauty of language through books, they can also share their values and create lasting connections. Here, Allyn offers parents and caregivers essential advice on choosing appropriate titles for their children—taking into account a child’s age, attention ability, gender, and interests— along with techniques for reading aloud effectively. But what sets this book apart is the extraordinary, annotated list of more than three hundred titles suitable for the pivotal moments in a child’s life. With category themes ranging from friendship and journeys to thankfulness, separations, silliness, and spirituality, What to Read When is a one-of-a-kind guide to how parents can best inspire children through reading together. In addition, Pam Allyn includes an indispensable “Reader’s Ladder” section, with recommendations for children at every stage from birth to age ten. With the author’s warm and engaging voice throughout, discussion questions to encourage in-depth conversations, as well as advice on helping kids make the transition to independent reading, this book will help shape thoughtful, creative, and curious children, imparting a love of reading that will last a lifetime.

Catherine M. O'Callaghan, Patricia A. Antonacci, Lucy P. Murphy, Florence D. Musiello, and Eugene Wolfson "Using Children's Literature Across the Curriculum: A Handbook of Instructional Strategies" This resource uniquely offers preservice and inservice teachers templates for using quality children's literature to implement six themes across grades K-8. The themes are based on national curriculum standards and text sets are carefully selected to facilitate discussion, analysis, and problem solving across the grades. "Using Children s Literature Across the Curriculum, "provides teachers with a guide to using multilayered texts to facilitate students attainment of critical literacy. It is designed to be a supplemental guide for teachers in designing literacy instruction. The instructional sequence includes collaborative inquiry activities across the curriculum to extend each theme to math, science, technology and social studies. Teachers are shown how to incorporate family literacy with a component entitled Home School Connections and to differentiate instruction for individual learners with a section entitled On Your Own Activities . The theme concludes with a critical literacy activity that applies the content knowledge of the theme with collaborative inquiry. ""I m excited to have this tool to share with the teachers in our program ..." "I had been given this as a first year teacher, I would have been thrilled. It s wonderful all encompassing."" - Susan T. Weakland, Pathways Educational Program, Curriculum Coordinator, Moultrie, GA "Highly recommended!" - Dr. Gail Singleton Taylor, Old Dominion University, Darden College of Education, Norfolk, VA ""A useful reference for teachers (new and experienced) to use to see how interdisciplinary work can be accomplished. It provides good examples, activities, and references that would provide a successful first experience for teachers working" "with thematic studies."" - Lisa Grundstrom, Bloomington Public Schools, K-2 Teacher, Bloomington, MN "

Jeff Anderson and literacy coach Whitney La Rocca take you into primary and intermediate classrooms where students are curious about language, engage with the world around them, and notice and experiment with the conventions all writers use. Instead of chanting grammar rules or completing countless convention worksheets, we invite young writers to explore conventions as special effects devices that activate meaning. Our students study authentic texts and come to recognize these "patterns of power"--the essential grammar conventions that readers and writers require to make meaning. The first part of the book introduces a vibrant approach to grammar instruction and sets up what you need to immerse yourself in the Patterns of Power process, inviting students to experiment and play with language. The second part of the book offers over seventy practical, ready-to-use lessons, including: Extensive support materials Over 100 mentor sentences, curated for grades 1-5 Student work samples Tips and power notes to facilitate your own knowledge and learning Examples for application In Patterns of Power Jeff and Whitney suggest that taking just five minutes from your reading workshop and five minutes from your writing workshop to focus on how the conventions connect reading and writing will miraculously affect your students' understanding of how language works for readers and writers.
