The Reading Strategies Book ~ Breaking It Down and Book Study!

Happy Fourth of July Weekend!

My Background Story

I have owned The Reading Strategies Book for over one year.  Last fall I even went to a Heinemann professional development day in which author Jennifer Serravallo spoke about and explained her book, but I still found this book overwhelming.  That's why I'm so excited to link up with Crystal from Teaching Little Miracles.

I want to use these amazing reading strategies to help my students, and I now feel ready to tackle the book!

Before Reading

There are plenty of available resources to help you understand and get the most out of this book:

Video walk-through of book from Jennifer! 

The more your know, the more you'll put your knowledge into use - which I know all about firsthand! 

Here's a quote from page 8 of the book:

Effective reading strategies are like my favorite recipes; they teach you how to accomplish something that is not yet automatic in a broken down, step-by-step manner.  I wouldn't ever tell a novice cook to just "whip up a souffle!" without telling her how... 

Of course, if you go to the bakery or assemble "no bake" creations like me, you won't need a souffle recipe in the first place!

Thanks for visiting today and enjoy the 4th of July! 


  1. Thanks for sharing the Heinemann links and the link to Jen's video! I hadn't thought about visiting those pages prior to reading. How neat that you got to see her speak as well! I'm glad to be participating in this book study with you!

  2. I had not seen the video yet--can't wait to check it out! Thanks for sharing the links. Thank you for linking up in the study. Looking forward to hearing more from you since you've actually heard her speak in person. :-)
