Last month was National Reading Month, and to celebrate we released two more Common Core aligned, reading products for districts and educators to help students with their ELA programs!
Our NEW ‘Close Reading Portfolio’ provides a series of reading material and interactive exercises that gives students practice in deriving central ideas and key supporting points in their reading material.
And the NEW ‘Books & Collections’ library comprises nearly 500 English and Spanish titles, and was developed to provide supplemental, grade specific, reading material in History/Social Science and Science topics.
In addition to the above, our popular ‘Guided Reading Program’ is still available on our redesigned website and provides over 130 engaging books and lesson plans, covering comprehension strategies, oral fluency skills, and content in history, science, and language arts.
