Bobbi (comment #26),
You can learn more about "Talking Back to Books" if you read my post about Reading Workshop. Here is a link to that post: http://blogs.scholastic.com/top_teaching/2009/10/reading-workshop.html
Let me know if you still have questions after reading that post!
You also asked if I had any suggestions for second grade teachers. (I think you are referring to word study.) I'm not sure exactly what information you are looking for, but, if I taught second grade, I would implement my word study program in the exact same way. The only thing that would be different would be the patterns and skills I would be teaching.
Let me know if I have answered your questions!
