100 Book Challenge aligns all of your existing reading materials and assessment tools using one simple color-coded leveling platform, keyed to Common Core Standards, that students, teachers, and parents can understand and use to ensure every student is making expected progress towards proficiency.
As if they had stopped at the book store on the way home from school every day with $15–$50 to spend, each student arrives home every afternoon with 1 or 2 or 3 or more, trade books, hot off the press, that are part of a system designed for their achievement. The standards-based book sizing system and take home Skills Cards keep parents informed and participating in their children’s success.
