Can you imagine all of your students engaged with reading in the classroom? This set of 5 colorful interactive books can help get them engaged. Students stay engaged in reading by matching the words and/or the pictures to the pages. Students of all ages love them because they can participate in reading. And, summer vacation, camp, the pool and the beach...what else could you want for summer books?
Who Are They For?
These books are great for students of any age working on basic vocabulary and either matching or reading skills. They are perfect for morning meeting or circle time, story time, and small group or 1-1 instruction on reading skills. They are written at approximately a first to second grade level and include matching pictures and words to complete the sentences based on the pictures on the page. I've used them with all ages from preschool through life skills high school classes.
