Welcome to this fantastic collection of 100 word ladder puzzles. Word ladders are fun and entertaining word puzzles that are a real test of your vocabulary. The rules of word ladders are deceptively simple. All you need to do is move from the word at the top of the ladder to the word at the bottom of the ladder in the stated number of steps, placing a new word on each rung of the ladder. As you move down the ladder, the rule is that you can only change one letter at a time, and you cannot shuffle the order of any of the letters. For instance, you can move from 'MORE' to 'MOVE', here changing the 'R' for a 'V'. However, 'MORE' to 'LOVE' isn't valid as here you are swapping two letters when you are only allowed to swap one. Of course, each word you make must be in the dictionary, so you couldn't move from 'MORE' to 'MZRE' for instance. That's all there is to it - good luck, and we hope you have lots of fun climbing, or descending, the 100 word ladders in this book!

Reading fluency has been identified in the Common Core Standards as a foundational competency for reading proficiency. This resource provides teachers with approaches to fluency instruction that are effective, engaging, and easy to implement. The authors begin with a comprehensive definition of reading fluency, a discussion of why fluency has fallen out of favor in recent years, and evidence of its importance to literacy instruction. They follow up with authentic approaches to reading fluency that teachers and literacy interventionists can immediately use to improve students’ overall proficiency in reading. A unique feature of the book are the participation sections “What do you think?” and “What we think,” which challenge the reader to engage in issues related to fluency—from concept, to assessment, to instruction—and then check their views against those of the authors. This important new book updates and adds to Timothy Rasinski’s classic text, The Fluent Reader. Book Features: Vignettes of teachers implementing research-based fluency instruction. Teaching strategies and classroom activities to help struggling readers. Full descriptions of the authors’ original, highly successful approaches to improving fluency. Resources for assessment and instruction of reading fluency. A new concept of reading instruction as an art as well as a science. “How delighted I was to find . . .wonderfully doable assessments and classroom activities that would truly teach children to read fluently and develop expressive reading as the bridge between word identification and comprehension.” —Pat Cunningham, Wake Forest University
