This reading curriculum is designed for emerging readers who have already learned the sound/letter connections (phonics) and are able to read simple sentences. The program helps to build grade-level fluency and comprehension skills.
The hard cover, two-volume readers offer a variety of genre, including both fiction and non-fiction, to teach students how to read for different purposes. There are six units that span six weeks each, and revolve around a Big Question that connects reading, vocabulary and writing skills. Comprehension and critical thinking questions are provided.
Each set includes the Student Readers, Teacher Resource DVD, Assessment Suite CD, and Guide on the Side. The Teacher Resource DVD contains activities and worksheets for each unit, teaching information, lesson plans, blank lesson planners for parents who want to individualize the program for their student, and vocabulary resources. The Guide on the Side is a teacher handbook that provides insight for teaching reading. The Assessment CD enables you to create, customize, and print tests.
The two readers have stories with two to four paragraphs per page. The type face is still larger and there are plenty of full-color pictures to break up the text. Phonics, sight word vocabulary, and reading critical thinking skills are included.
