Oral language is the cornerstone of literacy, and this reader-friendly book provides a tool – the “Strive-For-Five” framework – to help educators extend conversations with students to help support speaking, vocabulary, reasoning and other skills. Chapters include “Creating Classroom Routines for Strive-for-Five Conversations”, “Choosing Books That Spark Rich Conversations” and “Talking Is Teaching: Strive-For-Five Conversations at Home.” This book is perfect for K-1 educators and those who support those grades.
