This year long workbook (201 pages) is designed as daily practices for bilingual, ESL, and struggling readers. Our school finds it beneficial for all our students, as it is a terrific review of foundational skills and academic vocabulary. Our fourth grade teachers have discovered it also aides in writing. Our students are now using more figurative language in their essays raising writing test scores as well as reading test scores. The book starts out on a very basic level to allow the teacher to see what gaps may exist in each student’s education. Skills are regularly reviewed throughout the workbook, which enables students to retain what they have learned. The questions in the text heavily focus on academic vocabulary and word study. Using this review has increased student achievement on standard academic testing by at least 20 % for most of our school population.
