Giggle Poetry Reading Lessons

A Successful Reading-Fluency Program Parents and Teachers Can Use to Dramatically Improve Reading Skills and Scores

Author: Amy Buswell,Bruce Lansky

Amy Buswell and Bruce Lansky's Giggle Poetry Reading Lessons turns struggling readers into happy readers — For Grades 2–5. Many struggling readers are embarrassed to read aloud. They are often intimidated or bored by texts that conventional programs require them to practice. So, instead of catching up, they fall further behind. Currently 67% of American fourth graders can’t read grade-level text. Reading specialist Amy Buswell has spent eight years looking for remediation methods that work. “What is needed,” Buswell explains, “is a program that improves the motivation of struggling readers, because that accounts for 90% of the problem.” Four years ago, Buswell came up with a brainstorm. She knew her best readers enjoyed reading Bruce Lansky’s poetry books for pleasure. The more poems they read, the better the reading got. Why not use Lansky’s kid-tested poems as texts struggling readers could practice on to improve their reading—using six research-based strategies: choral reading, echo reading, paired reading, repeated reading, sustained silent reading and “say it like the character” reading. — This book is the result of that brainstorm and the resulting collaboration between Buswell and Lansky. It gives teachers and parents everything they need to help children improve their reading: -35 kid-tested poems by Bruce Lansky -35 customized reading lessons by Amy Buswell -35 off-the-wall illustrations by Stephen Carpenter -35 sets of zany performance tips by Bruce Lansky …all of which is designed to make the process of reading improvement more like fun than work. — What Amy Buswell and Bruce Lansky have created is the most entertaining fluency intervention ever. That’s why it is so successful at overcoming negative attitudes to improve reading skills and scores. Ninety-five percent of participating students made significant improvement in their fluency (reading rate). And average reading scores on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) for Buswell’s school raised her school’s rating to an A for the first time. In 2011, Buswell’s school achieved one of the highest-percentage reading gains in the county. — There’s no reason parents can’t get in on the fun, too. Parents will enjoy Lansky’s funny poems and Stephen Carpenter’s delightful illustrations as much as their children. By reading the poems with their children and encouraging their children to try some of Lansky’s entertaining performance tips (by adding gestures, sound effects, props and finding additional readers: be they friends, family or neighbors), they can dramatically speed up their child’s reading progress (and have lots of fun in the process.)

Applying principles from Linda and Carla's latest book, Interventions That Work: A Comprehensive Intervention Model for Reversing Reading Failure, their DVD series,Interventions that Work illustrates how teachers use data to implement research-based interventions—from kindergarten to eighth grade–that transform struggling students into successful readers and writers. The interventions are part of the authors' Comprehensive Intervention Model (CIM), a design for preventing reading failure in the early grades and reversing reading failure in the upper grades. The Guided Reading Plus (GRP) collection includes two disks of classroom video, lesson plans, and a wealth of resources along with a facilitator's guide for training and implementing the small group intervention. The GRP video collection is structured to provide training and support for teachers in learning about Guided Reading Plus as an intervention for struggling readers and as an intervention for their school's Response to Intervention (RTI) plan. Features: Provides a small-group intervention, based on the authors' Comprehension for Intervention Model (CIM) ,for students in grades three and beyond who are lagging behind their peers in reading. Consists of a series of 30-minute daily reading and writing lessons designed to promote students' knowledge of genre and text structures through in-depth units of study. Includes opportunities for teachers to collect systematic data for progress monitoring. Guides teachers in implementing explicit teaching and concrete examples to assist struggling readers to develop efficient strategies for problem solving in texts and to comprehend the message at deeper levels. Features two disks: Disk One contains supplemental materials such as the Facilitators' Guide, Power Point Presentation slides, guide sheet of lesson components, planners, Text Map/Writing Guide, and mentor texts for personal narrative. Disk Two contains CFG video lessons in reading and writing based on a unit of study for personal narrative texts. This disk is divided into four chapters with each chapter representing a unique phase with a total of 13 episodes under the phases. The episodes take place over a period of four weeks.
