The K-3 Social Studies text sets will help increase students’ informational text experience, as called for by the Common Core Instructional Shifts. Each theme includes a read aloud basket for delivery of grade-level content, as well as independent reading baskets for differentiation.
The teacher read aloud collection is a set of 25 anchor titles, on or above grade level, that have been selected for their exemplary quality in craft, content delivery, and format. Thematic texts at students’ independent levels engage young children in content-area study while providing opportunities for practice with CCSS Foundational Skills and Reading Standards.
