Veteran teacher Janiel Wagstaff shows how to harness the power of children's names to teach key reading and writing skills. ABC Name Walls jumpstart lessons on letter-sound correspondence, identifying beginning, middle, and ending sounds, and blending and segmenting sounds. The more advanced Chunking Name Wall helps students spell and decode using patterns in classmates' names. Wagstaff offers tips for creating the walls, introducing the names, and systematically teaching the skills children need to become successful readers and writers--all in a fun and motivating way.
