Reading pyramidsMoreNow in its fifth edition, Reading Pathways (with help from Dewey the Bookworma?[) offers an easy-to-use, highly effective approach to teaching reading accuracy and fluency to students of all ages, using a unique pyramid format. Reading pyramids begins with one word, and slowly build into phrases and sentences of gradually increasing complexity. As the student moves from the pinnacle to the base of each pyramid, the phrase or sentence becomes a more interesting and expansive, and the students confidence grows with each line completed. Progressively building up the amount of text per line increases eye span, strengthens eye tracking, and develops reading fluency. The book also features more challenging multi-syllable word pyramid exercises and games to further develop fluency and vocabulary. Learning to read long words by syllables removes the fear and mystique of multi-syllable words and helps students build the strong vocabulary so critical for success in reading and writing.Dewey(R) and Dewey Decimal Classification(R) are proprietary trademarks of OCLC Online Computer Library Center, and are used with permission.Dewey the Bookworm(TM), Dewey D.
