The student letter books tie learning together. Each book connects code-based foundational skills with meaning-based comprehension skills so that each reading session is purposeful and impactful.
- Includes a mix of target letter-sound words, decodable words, sight words, and story words
- Stories with characters, settings, and plots that drive students’ thoughts and discussions
- Shared reading opportunities to get children to attend to print, letters, words, and ideas
The letter stories feature contemporary settings and cultures from all around the world. Students will encounter characters and situations in which they can see themselves, while also experiencing other cultures at the same time.
- Features characters in common situations children experience
- Broadens children’s understanding of diverse cultures and topics
SEL is woven throughout every lesson and letter story. As students read, think, talk, and write or draw, they explore five key SEL habits grounded in the CASEL core competencies.
In each story, the main character faces a problem. As the character works through the problem, readers see examples of how a positive habit can manifest in everyday situations.
