What are Companion books?  I see the same title in the Emergent Reader Series and Reading Series One.

Reading Series One titles are longer versions of the Emergent Reader Companion Titles.  Using Emergent Reader Companions and Reading Series One titles together provide an excellent opportunity for differentiated instruction. Students in the Emergent Reader Series who need more complex text can be given Reading Series One books to read. Students who need more practice consolidating skills while transitioning into the Decodable Literature Library can revisit Emergent Reader Series Companions. To see examples, click here.

What is the difference between The Emergent Reader Series and Reading Series One, Two, and Three?

Emergent Reader Series titles are designed to systematically and cumulatively introduce foundational phonics skills. These important early phonics skills take students into the full alphabetic stage of reading and become the foundation of decodability for all future titles in the Books to Remember Series. Our Emergent Reader titles are carefully designed to offer beginning readers extensive opportunities to apply and internalize what they have learned about letters, speech sounds, letter-sound correspondences, meaningful word parts, and high-frequency words as they practice reading connected, complex, authentic text.

Reading Series One titles are longer versions of the Emergent Reader "Companion" titles with more complex vocabulary and story structure. These books provide students, now in the full alphabetic stage of reading, with the opportunity to consolidate skills they learned in the Emergent Reader Series. No new phonics skills are introduced, so instruction can focus on continued development of automaticity, fluency, prosody, and close reading skills. Reading books with increasing text complexity but familiar story lines helps students comfortably adjust to reading more advanced texts. Once students are adept at reading Reading Series One books, they will be ready to move into Reading Series Two.

Reading Series Two titles are designed to introduce new target letter-sound correspondences for intermediate phonics skills and to develop automaticity and fluency while reading robust narrative and informational texts and poetry with comprehension and proper prosody.

Reading Series Three titles are designed to introduce new target letter-sound correspondences. Please notice that because our books are complex, robust, and meaningful, close reading skills can be developed in conjunction with foundational skills in multiple rereads of the same text.

 

Do I need Teacher’s Guides?

Our teacher’s guides follow the sequence of our book titles and help teachers systematically and explicitly develop students’ foundational phonics and close reading skills. If you are looking for evidence-based instructional lesson plans that align with our titles, we think you will be happy with your decision to include teacher’s guides in your order.

 

Can I search for a title by target phonics skill?

Yes.  The Phonics Scope & Sequence in the Resources section of our website displays the name of each title and its letter-sound correspondences.

 

Do you ship internationally?

Yes.  Shipping rates to Canada and Australia are included on our website.  For all other countries, please contact us for a shipping quote once you have selected your items: info@flyleafpublishing.com.
