Intentional from the start, guiding emergent readers in small groups, Caroline Helmers and Susan Vincent ; foreword by Tanny McGregor

Summary
"Intentional from the Start takes a concentrated look at the often-underestimated reading and writing work that goes on during the emergent reader stages of literacy development (Pre A - D) and the seemingly simplistic texts we use to teach them in small group, Guided Reading. Though both may appear unsophisticated, these earliest readers and the texts used to meet their needs are each unique and full of nuances that teachers often overlook and - worse - are rarely trained to consider"--, Provided by publisher
