About this title:

Synopsis: This binder includes: 5 Teacher's Guides How to Teach Happily Ever After booklet 6 CDs Blackline Masters Book Happily Ever After is a reading readiness program with children's literature at its heart. Happily Ever After gives children the foundation to begin reading instruction with the Superkids Reading Program. Beautifully illustrated, classic stories from children's literature are the basis of the 10 units in the program. Here's Why It Works Early reading skills are most effectively taught when integrated with the other language arts. Reading instruction works best when it keeps children constantly engaged in writing, listening, and speaking. This is the integrated approach used in Happily Ever After. Children listen to stories and discuss them. Children see you write and write themselves by dictating their ideas to you. Children begin to understand that written words stand for spoken thoughts and that communication is the goal of all the language arts. Explicit instruction supports children at every step. A good readiness program assumes nothing. Instead, it carefully breaks down and explains tasks. For example, children aren't just asked to draw a line. First they learn what a dot and a line are. Then, on pages that show a dot at the left of a line, they learn to put a crayon on the dot and trace the line from left to right. After this, they draw a line independently. Finally, only after learning through concrete activity the meaning of under, are children asked to draw a line under something and introduced to the word underline. This careful, explicit, systematic approach makes all children successful, task by task, and gives them the strongest possible foundation for learning to read. A multimodal approach engages all children.
