I am only half way through the book and I am so impressed with the teaching that I had to see what other books were written by Susan Lunsford. In addition to the scripted mini lessons, that are easy to adapt and very informative, Susan includes creative activities to extend the learning, handouts, graphic organizers, and what I really love, a list of books to read and share with the students that focus on the lessons.

Each lesson lists the goal which includes, exploring rhyming words; making new words by changing the beginning letters; inventing rhyming words; exploring plural, "ing" and "ed" endings; compound words; initial consonant blends; separating syllables; the long vowel rule; silent 'e' rule; short vowel sounds; homonyms & synonyms; and identifying nouns.
