From the Back Cover:

For quick access and easy use, the Kit is organized into eight sections and printed in a big 8-1/4" x 11" spiral-bound format that folds flat for photocopying of any page as many times as needed. Here's just a sampling of the practical help you'll find in this remarkable resource:

  • Dozens of ready-to-use assessment aids to determine students' specific reading strengths and weaknesses, including a complete Individual Reading Inventory (IRI) with reproducible word lists, oral reading passages, and observation checklists from the preprimary to grades 10-12 reading levels
  • Over 80 stimulating hands-on games and activity sheets to build students' skills in letter-name knowledge, sight word recognition, word structure, context clues, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and more
  • Step-by-step guidelines, activities and reproducibles for teaching phonics, an important and sometimes neglected reading skill
  • Up-to-date information and materials for teaching reading to students with special needs, including children with learning disabilities, attention deficit disorders, and dyslexia as well as children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
  • Specific techniques for enlisting the support of family members and friends in a child's reading program, including three reading checklists at the preschool, primary grade, and intermediate grade levels and four games family members can use to review sight words and phonic skills
  • Comprehensive lists of fiction and nonfiction trade books that reinforce the learning of essential reading skills— from alphabet and rhyme books to multicultural literature
In short, The Reading Teacher's Survival Kit gives reading teachers and tutors a unique compendium of classroom-tested strategies, materials, games and reproducibles for effectively meeting the individual reading needs and interests of the children with whom they are working.
