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

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 scho

OCHO COMEDIAS Y OCHO ENTREMESES NUEVOS NUNCA REPRESENTADOS (Spanish Edition)

Dadas sus penurias economicas, el teatro fue la gran vocacion de Cervantes. Escribe que cuando era mozo tras el carro de los comediantes y que asistio a las austeras representaciones de Lope de Rueda. Sin embargo, su exito, que lo tuvo, pues sus obras se representaron , como dice en el prologo a sus "Ocho comedias y ocho entremeses nunca representados" y es, en efecto, el entremes el genero dramatico donde luce en todo su esplendor el genio dramatico de Cervantes, de forma que puede decirse que junto a Luis Quinones de Benavente y Francisco de Quevedo es Cervantes uno de los mejores autores del genero, al que aporto una mayor profundidad en los personajes, un humor inimitable y un mayor calado y trascendencia en la tematica. Que existia interconexion entre el mundo teatral y el narrativo de Cervantes lo demuestra que, por ejemplo, el tema del entremes de El viejo celoso aparezca en la novela ejemplar de El celoso extremeno. Otras veces aparecen personajes sanchopancescos, como en el entremes de la Eleccion de los alcaldes de Daganzo, donde el protagonista es tan buen catador o de vinos como Sancho.

Se conoce como entremes (o paso) a una pieza dramatica jocosa y de un solo acto, protagonizada por personajes de clases populares, que solia representarse durante el Siglo de Oro espanol, es decir, a fines del siglo XVI y durante el siglo XVII y XVIII hasta su prohibicion en 1780, entre la primera y segunda jornada de una obra mayor. Posteriormente sera llamado sainete. En Europa, su equivalente es la farsa, cuya denominacion se aplico en Espana a cualquier tipo de representacion teatral.

The Old Spice Guys' Grooming Guidance Guide for Guys with Beards & Other Poems

The Old Spice Guys' Grooming Guidance Guide for Guys with Beards (TOSGGGGFGWB) is an excellent piece of fan fiction for fans of facial hair and is heralded as a marketing masterpiece by the beard community.

In 2018, Old Spice released their beard collection, which includes beard wash, beard conditioner, beard oil, and beard balm. The launch of this beard collection was the inspiration behind each poem and the catalyst for every feeling felt within this audiobook.

Each line of every poem takes a deep dive into how it feels to have a clean, soft, nourished, and sculpted beard. While this piece of literature explores the existential nuances of beard grooming, each moment also acts as an educational tool to guide men through the basics of beardness.
