Reading Steps and "Let's Talk About..."
"Let's Talk About..."® Reading Topics are conversation starters for home and the classroom. Sometimes it can be hard to talk about the important things with our young ones-- we hope these books will help open up thoughtful opportunities for great talks!
Reading Steps® are created to help provide steps to grow confident readers!
Learners come in all shapes and sizes-- all possessing very unique skill sets and challenges to overcome.
Reading level systems provide general grade level suggestions for parents and educators to assist in matching a title to the reader. However reading style and level is as different in every learner as their taste buds!
We would like to remove the concept of "levels" and introduce a step system and a Reading Plan of Action. Levels imply judgement and competition; they can just as easily hold back a gifted reader as discourage an unconfident reader.
What makes a successful learner? Focusing on each as an individual. And don't forget to build a Reading Plan of Action that fits his or her learning style best!
Plan of Action tools coming soon! In the meantime, we'd be happy to get you the beta version, feel free to email us anytime!
