“This teacher-friendly book lays out the elements necessary to create a well-balanced classroom where children's reading, speaking, and writing can thrive. Great book lists, school-to-home letters, easy-to-manage assessment charts, and well-defined, research-based routines will help new and seasoned teachers create a literacy-rich classroom. If first-grade teachers are going to read only one professional book on literacy this year, this should be the one.”

—Catherine Kuhns, MEd, National Board Certified Teacher (Early Childhood), Country Hills Elementary School, Coral Springs, Florida

“This is just the resource new primary teachers are looking for. The teacher-friendly text and authentic examples make research-based practices come alive. From up-to-date information on workshop models and differentiated instruction and assessment, to tried-and-true room arrangements, Teaching Literacy in First Grade has something for everyone!”

—Nancy Frey, PhD, School of Teacher Education, San Diego State University

“This book provides first-time first-grade teachers with explicit suggestions and guidance for developing a comprehensive literacy program. The many vignettes help teachers see how literacy instruction is delivered in academically rich, culturally diverse classrooms. I especially appreciated the chapter on home-school connections.”
