Publisher's Description

Now in its fifth edition, Reading Pathways (with help fromDewey the Bookwormâ?¢) offers an easy-to-use, highlyeffective approach to teaching reading accuracy and fluency tostudents of all ages, using a unique pyramid format.

Reading pyramids begins with one word, and slowly build intophrases and sentences of gradually increasing complexity. As thestudent moves from the pinnacle to the base of each pyramid, thephrase or sentence becomes a more interesting and expansive, andthe student's confidence grows with each line completed.Progressively building up the amount of text per line increases eyespan, strengthens eye tracking, and develops reading fluency. Thebook also features more challenging multi-syllable word pyramidexercises and games to further develop fluency and vocabulary.Learning to read long words by syllables removes the fear andmystique of multi-syllable words and helps students build thestrong vocabulary so critical for success in reading andwriting.
