This chapter offers detailed descriptions and lesson plans for early readers. The author uses the alphabetic reading levels created by Fountas and Pinnell (2008) to help teachers find the stage that best matches their students' reading levels. The lesson plans target reading strategies and skills appropriate for the early reading stage (levels D-I). Also included are word study and guided reading activities to give students an opportunity to apply skills and strategies that have been taught in the lesson.
