Everyday Readers Curriculum features a collection of
36 stories, one for each week of the school year. They incorporate
educational concepts—like counting, health, and language skills—and are
intended to be read aloud to young students, ages 4–9. The Curriculum
includes two Everyday Readers storybooks and a Teacher’s Guide.
The photo-illustrated stories range from 6–10 pages each, with about
25 words per page. Photos highlight story characters and other elements
in the narrative, encouraging students to follow along and understand
the storyline. Stories end with a three-question comprehension activity.
Stories follow a chronological sequence so you can present seasonal
themes and events.
The Introductory Kit includes Everyday Readers Books
One and Two, Teacher’s Guide with a PDF on Win/Mac CD, and a Classroom
License for printouts. The Classroom Kit includes five sets of Everyday Readers Books, plus all other items in the Introductory Kit.
Features & Benefits
The Teacher’s Guide provides lesson plans for each story—complete with
teacher scripts, student learning objectives, and story page
illustrations. The Guide also includes additional vocabulary and
sequencing activities, which can be printed out from the PDF CD. Each
sequencing activity is differentiated by difficulty: in Level 1,
students point to photos that belong in the story; in Level 2, students
use the photos to retell the story in sequence; students select a photo,
then tell an original story in Level 3.
